Expected Alpaca Behaviour 38

What is normal ?

Everything has a cause

When you first start with alpacas, it takes you a while to recognise what is normal. This is a learning opportunity – are youdoing the best for your alpacas in the best way? It is what we all aim for and learning what is normal, is a key part of achieving this.

Everything your alpacas do has a reason behind it. In this episode, we consider this and particulalry spitting and moving away from us as we move towards them. How can we encourage good expected behaviour and not create bad behaviours?


  1. There is a normal – for alpacas in general and each alpaca individually.
  2. Expected behaviour has a cause as does unexpected behaviour.
  3. You can help or hinder developing good expected behaviour.
