Alpacas are cute-looking beasts that from a distance resemble long-legged, long-necked sheep. The two animals are not even closely related though. Alpacas have more similarities with llamas than they do sheep – and yes, just like llamas alpacas are experts at spitting too. While alpacas are a species that originated from the mountainous areas of South American, in countries like Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, they’re now found all over the world where they’re prized for the high quality of wool they produce.
