Come and pet the alpacas!

Fun Facts:
They come from Peru and live in on the hills in higher elevations.
Despite that, Alpacas can thrive anywhere.
They are all over the world, North America, Australia, Europe, Asia...
Alpacas rarely spit unless they feel threatened!
They are not llamas, so please do not confuse them as such!
They are actually smaller than llamas.
Alpacas, llamas, camels, vicuña and guanaco are all of the same family (Camelids!)
There are no wild alpacas, they were bred as domestic animals for their fiber!
Their fiber is super soft and hypoallergenic!
They are herd animals and are happiest in groups!
They make different sounds, mostly humming to communicate. But they can also squak/honk out of their noses to alert the herd.
They graze on grass, hay and they will also eat special pellets. Some alpacas like treats like carrots, and I even saw a video of one who loved crab apples!
Alpacas are typically timid and some don't like to be touched (mine do at this petting zoo!)

There are two types of alpacas!
Huacaya (wah-kai-yuh) and they look like fluffy teddy bears!
Suri (sir-ree) and they look like shaggy dogs

Petting them:
Please do not pet their heads! Even though their heads are very fluffly, they prefer being pet on their necks or bodies.

Feeding them:
Please only feed them the supplied pellets and baby carrots!

Now that you've learned about them, please enjoy the petting zoo!

Woo hoo! I haven't even tried logging into mene on my phone. D:

It's so late, I should be sleeping but I have an event tomorrow night that's an overnight thing so I'm figuring if I stay up and then nap in the afternoon I shouldn't be too tired for it.

For one of the anime conventions I staff, we hold an overnight "lock in" of sorts where we rent out one of those arcade places, but it also has skating, bumper cars, go karts, mini golf, rides and other things. All the games are on free play. I have to help at admissions and then I can go have fun.

I hopefully can find all the pieces to my keith from voltron cosplay since i'd be less worried about that one getting messed up.

Sound really yummy.

All I've had today has been a handful of sunflower seeds, and three pieces of sushi. Living off sugar water. Well coffee to be exact.

I wasn’t able to get online at all today. I woke up late, I got lunch and went for a walk with the husband and then I went an hour away to help a friend style a wig, and then visited family. I’m just now getting home.
