No way.  The stuffed animal looked like a white fox to me (or an animal
similar to a fox).  A vicuna looks like a llama (the two-l llama, not the
Dalai Lama or the fire emergency).  The vicuna looks like a llama because it
is a close relative of both the llama and the alpaca.

If you don't know what a llama looks like, go back to the first season --
the episode where Dale, Harry and Andy visit the vet, Dr. Bob Lydecker.  The
big animal that Coop comes face-to-face with in the waiting room is a llama.
