Alpacas actually come from Peru, Chile and Bolivia.
They are very robust, - even big temperature fluctuations do not cause them any problems!
Like llamas, they belong to the camel family.
Being calloused, they have soft pads under their hooves that give them good grip and protect the grazing ground.
These social animals need other alpacas around them and want to be kept in groups.
The underlay and bedding form an extra absorbent base and a heat-insulating buffer.
Basic feed with a high content of structured natural fibre.
The bedding forms a comfortable lying surface.
Clean droppings and urine disposal areas in the stall and exercise area: daily.
Complete renewal of the substrate: at least 1 x per week
