ALPACAS


Located in South America, the Alpaca is a domesticated mammal that resembles the llama, but are smaller and aren't used as beasts of burden. Their coats are used to make blankets, sweaters, hats, socks and gloves. It is illegal to slaughter or trade Alpaca meat. They come in over 50 colors and are gentle, inquisitive and intelligent. They are kept in herds and make a humming sound that can take on many inflections and meanings. Males make a bird-like screams and will fight violently over females in the herd when mating. They don't like their heads being touched, but you can pet their necks and backs. Not all Alpacas spit, but they're capable, so don't piss 'em off.
