Alpacas use a communal dung pile where they do not graze. If one goes for a poo, the others will get in line too!!
There are two types of Alpacas (Vicugna pacos), Huacaya and Suri. About 90% of Alpacas are the Huacaya breed.
Around 6,000 years ago, the Andean people started to domesticate Alpacas.
99% of the world's Alpacas still live in South America.
Alpacas are herd animals and don't like to live alone. When their own kind aren't around, they like to live with Llamas, goats and sheep.
Alpaca don't have teeth in the top front of their mouths which is why they sometimes look a bit goofy!
