Alpacas are the new cats!
Ok… maybe that's just wishful thinking (sorry cat lovers).
Alpacas aren't that popular (yet), but we think there should be at least one in every neighborhood and/or classroom.
Watch this video about Zeus (originally named Jesus but changed to avoid confusion) the adorbz alpaca and you'll see what we mean.
If that doesn't sell you, check out his facebook page!

We're as surprised as Conan O'Brien was when he interviewed Nicole Kidman on his show and the glamorous actress revealed she raises alpaca's!
Alpacas are fluffy camelids that are found mostly in South America that Kidman gushes "are so pretty!"
Apparently her two-year old child loves the gentle creatures and Kidman said they even walk them around on a leash!
Maybe instead of surprising your kids with a puppy on Christmas morning, surprise them with an exotic Alpaca!
Nicole lives with her husband Keith Urban on a farm in Nashville, Tennessee with a variety of animals and admits she would like to add to her exotic animal collection with a few snakes.

Nicole Kidman loves her weird and interesting animals.
She has been pursuing her dream of raising alpacas on her farm in Nashville, Tennessee with husband Keith Urban and two-year-old daughter Sunday Rose.
Nicole says that she would love to get more exotic animals, such as snakes, but she doesn't know if it is a good idea to have them around the baby.
Nicole says that she has always been fascinated by interesting animals. She told Conan, "we have alpacas on our farm because they're so pretty. They have lovely long lashes. I think they're really cool. I always wanted a mix of weird animals but that's the weirdest we have."
Well that sounds like fun!
Maybe when Sunday Rose gets older you can finally get your snakes Nicole!
