Cody the Alpaca was born premature and for a while it was touch-and-go as to whether she would survive. With the help of Amber Isaacs from Silken Suri, this little girl pulled through, and is a delight to all who know her. Visit “Silken Suri” below and Cody’s Facebook page.
The story of Cody is based on the real life of one of the smallest surviving alpacas in the US. Now healthy and happy, Cody’s joyful antics have won hearts across the country and all over the world.
Alpacas are Camelids and are shorn and their fleece used in clothing. Thousands of years ago they were used in South America for fuel, transport and clothing. The largest population of alpaca is found in the Andean zone of Bolivia and Peru. For information about this and about alpaca wool, please click on the first link below.
