Well the proper term is actually, cria, which comes from the Spanish word for baby. Llamas, vicunas, and guanacos, types of camelids, are all called crias when they are babies. Alpacas are native to the Andes mountains in countries like Peru, Chile, Ecuador, and Chile. Alpaca wool is some of the best around, its warm, smooth, fine and soft, what more could you want?
Have you ever been in the woods and seen a tiny spiky creature running along the forest floor? Well be careful because those little porcupettes will grow into a porcupine! Porcupines can’t actually shoot their quills so if you stay a safe distance away and leave them be you should be fine. If you hear a porcupine stomping its feet, much like a child during a tantrum, they feel threatened and they could come after you with those quills!
