Alpacas were first imported into Australia in 1989, and by 2001 there were 40,000 in the country – and that number is rapidly increasing. This alpaca is being used as a sheep minder having bonded with the flock of sheep, we hope. Apparently alpaca’s are unafraid of foxes and wild dogs and scare them away from their adopted herd by chasing and stomping the intruders.

These guys are all part of the Pinjarra Alpaca Stud, and prove just how nosy – sorry inquisitive alpaca’s can be.
