Alpaca | Lama guanicoe f. pacos

There are two types of alpaca: the Huacaya and the Suri. The Huacaya alpaca has fine ruffled hair, while the Suri alpaca has curly straight strands. The alpaca belongs to the family of camels. It has no hump, like all New World camels. Alpacas are slightly smaller than llamas and only weigh up to 80 kilograms. The alpaca lives in the South American Andes. There it is kept as a livestock because of its wool. What coat colors do you see in alpacas? There are very white and beige animals, brown, reddish brown, gray and even very black animals! Some alpacas also have several colors and are two-toed.

Serengeti-Park animals: Alpaca

Alpacas, like all camels, are social animals and feel most at home in herds. They have a calm and peaceful character. That’s why they are used in Germany for animal-assisted therapy! Alpacas feed almost exclusively on grass. The females are pregnant for almost a year, giving birth after 345 days.
