|(Schnecksville, PA) – There are a few new faces in the Lehigh Valley Zoo Barnyard! Four-year-old Illuminati and 6-year-old Havoc are adjusting well to their new surroundings since arriving earlier this month. Alpacas are native to the central and southern Andes Mountains from Peru to Argentina and are the smallest of the domesticated camelid species.
They have joined the Zoo’s 15-year-old alpaca resident – White Lightning in the barnyard last week. Both the new alpacas have different personalities – Illuminati, the chocolate brown one, is reserved while Havoc, the light fawn one, has a strong personality according to LVZoo Keepers.
You can also visit a range of domesticated animals in the barnyard, including Dorset Sheep, Hampshire Sheep, Vietnamese Pot-Bellied Pig and three species of goats. Guests wishing to visit Illuminati and Havoc and the other animals at the Zoo can purchase their tickets online on the Zoo’s website by visiting lvzoo.org/tickets.
