Alpacas usually eat grasses - just like llamas, horses and such animals. (2) Alpacas aren't wild! I know you may have been mislead by the topic they have been put under, but alpacas are now all domesticated. I'm so sorry to dissapoint you, but alpacas are no longer wild. Domesticated alpacas, however, eat : - Orchard grass hay - Specially formulated alpaca feed - Gestation and Lactation for pregnant females and growing youngesters - Llama feed mixed with Mare & Foal - A mix of rabbit pellets and the above - Orchard or another form of grass, depending on the area grass is to be grown That is what my alpacas eat, anyway!
