{ Alpacas }

Alpaca is a distant relative of Camels, it is similar to Llamas although it is smaller and with straight ears. It is native of the Andes (Peru, Chile and Bolivia) and its wool is very valuable. It is a docile animal who can accompany us on pleasant walks; it is also used in pet therapy.

There are two breeds of alpaca: “Suri” – the white specimens – and “Huacaya” – the dark specimens. The Suri breed is more valuable because its fiber is like silk, but the Huacaya is very rare.

Alpacas does not suffer harsh climate and, for this reason, they can live in Zoncolan Mountains both in winter and summer.

Sometimes they spit, but nothing dangerous!
