We have a herd of five Alpacas at Raystede.
They can be seen in our fields by day and roam our secured sanctuary enclosure at night to protect our birds and wildlife from foxes.
Naturally guarding animals, they are an excellent friendly alternative to keeping predators at bay. They do this by sending out an alarm call by way of a loud pitched bray and make use of their feet to kick at small prey and spit at them.
Some of our Alpacas are halter trained and can be seen being led around our grounds.
