Alpacas visit senior center (Personal note: I considered doing my thesis on South American camelids when I was studying zoology (decided on quakers) and I still remember certain interesting facts: Did you know that the alpaca is the domesticated 'version' of the wild vicuna and that the llama was domesticated from the guanaco? That it was the Incas who domesticated them both 6,000 years ago? And that there is now very little difference between the alpaca and the llama because of hybridization between the two species? That the hybrid of a llama father and an alpaca mother is called Huarizo and that offspring of an alpaca father and a llama mother is called misto?)
