Alpacas are small endearing animals of the camelid family. They were domesticated over 5,000 years ago, and became a cherished treasure of the ancient Incan civilization. Their fine cashmere-like fleece was reserved solely for royalty. These amazing animals provided the food, fuel and clothing for a civilization that thrived in an otherwise hostile environment. Alpacas communicate through soft humming noises and unique body language.
Baby alpacas, called cria, generally weigh 14 - 20 lbs at birth.
