A Peruvian alpaca smiling for a photo 06 Sep 2017
About this photo
A cheeky and wild-haired alpaca grins for the camera in Peru. The Andean Highlands are home to around three million of these animals. The distinctive alpaca fibres are in demand for knitted textiles and goods. Alpaca fibres are warmer than sheep's wool, less itchy and also hypoallergenic. See these loveable animals on any of Insight Guides' trips to Peru.
