suri alpaca cria

Young alpaca cria closeup

Alpaca cria IMG 8087 - Alpacas, which are members of the camelid family of animals that includes the llamas, guanacos, and vicuñas of South America and also camels of the old world, thrive in the wild on the South American altiplano - the high plains of the Andes Mountains that are more than 4,000 metres above sea level. The first alpacas to be exported from their homeland were sent to the USA in 1984, and when, in 1989, a group were sent to Australia, a new agricultural industry was born. This young alpaca, known as a cria, was photographed on an alpaca farm near the Queensland city of Bundaberg.
