An alpaca is a close relative of the South American camelides and it looks a little bit like a too small llama. Alpacas are usually held in herds in high altitudes like more than 3.500 to 5.000 meters in the Andes - mostly in Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Ecuador. In contrast to lamas, alpacas are not mainly used in order to transport heavy objects, but for their fiber, that is very soft. Especially the high-end textile industry loves alpacas as they can produce luxurious clothes.
If you had the chance to touch an alpaca you know why everyone is crazy about them. But our gallery can help you to get a very first impression and transmits this feeling at least on a visual level.
