The Alpaca (vicugña pacos) is a domesticated species of South American camelid. This means they are related to camels.
Sometimes alpacas are confused with llamas. While closely related, llamas and alpacas are distinctly different animals. First, llamas are much larger, about twice the size of an alpaca. Llamas are primarily used for packing or for guarding herds of sheep or alpacas, whereas alpacas are primarily raised for their soft and luxurious fleece.
