Who knows what animals visited us last week? Look closely and try to guess! No, they are not llamas... but their close cousins - alpacas.


These animals are extremely cute with their doe eyes, long eyelashes and silky, fluffy coats. But, like their cousins the llamas, alpacas spit when angry or annoyed. Alpacas' tails are used to express feelings to each other. If they're bothered by something they will twitch it back and forth. If an animal is being submissive it will raise its tail over its body and crouch down.


Mothers almost always have their babies in the morning. This is also related to life in the high desert in South America where temperatures are very cold at night. By having their babies in the morning, the little ones will have the whole day to dry off, begin walking around, and nursing from the mother before the temperatures begin to drop.


They like basking in the sun, and love to sunbathe.
