WATCH: How a texan llama uses a leaf blower to stay cool

A TEXAN zoo has found a creative way to keep a llama cool in temperatures of more than 40C.

The Houston Zoo has posted a video to YouTube of a llama named Fiesta enjoying a leaf blower the zoo uses to clean out the stalls in its Children's Zoo every morning.

"Our llama Fiesta runs right up to the keepers so she can enjoy the breeze," the zoo posted with the YouTube clip.

The video shows Fiesta running to the leafblower and twisting and turning under its cool air.
