Answer:

This is an alpaca. To quote Jean Valjean: Cao Ni Ma, literally “Grass Mud Horse”, was supposedly a species of alpaca. The name is derived from cào nǐ mā (Chinese: 肏你妈), which translates to “**** your mother”. Part of the Baidu 10 mythical creatures meme.

    The Alpaca aka the Grass Mud Horse (Cao Ni Ma), a symbol of defiance to the Chinese Internet censorship.

    The animal is the alpaca.
    Its one of the animals in the “Baidu 10 mythical creatures” which started in protest of China’s keyword filters.

    That’s a llama. Countless pop-culture references exist, but from the geek perspective I’d guess you were looking for the Winamp mascot funda.

    Is this the Grass Mud Horse business?

    Seems like a Llama. Perhaps it’s getting extinct. (I didn’t try hard but I can’t find anything other than maybe a Winamp 5.55 release.)
