Alpacas are herd animals. A person must have at least two of these
animals or else they will get ulcers from worry.
Their fur can be woven into soft blankets and clothing that is not itchy.
The children got to feel their "wool".
Alpacas( in the llama family) are shy and gentle.
They eat only grass (fresh and dried) and water. Their bones have been found in Florida so they originated in the States. Then they were brought to South America and now are being reintroduced back to the States.
