The alpaca is a type of llama that lives in the Andes Mountains of South America. The alpaca is part of the camelidae family and is closely related to the well-known llama. The llama is a much larger animal, standing up to 4 feet at the shoulder and weighing 340 pounds. Both are semi-wild domesticated animals related to the wild guanaco. Some think the alpaca may be a cross between a llama and vicu�a.
