Just so, how much does a full grown alpaca weigh?

An adult alpaca generally is between 81–99 centimetres (32–39 in) in height at the shoulders (withers). They usually weigh between 48–84 kilograms (106–185 lb).

at what age is an alpaca fully grown? A male is usually ready to mate for the first time between one and three years of age. A female alpaca may fully mature (physically and mentally) between 12–24 months.

Also Know, how many babies can alpacas have?

Alpacas breed once a year, and as livestock they are often induced to breed at any time. The female alpaca has a gestation period of 242 to 345 days and gives birth to just one offspring. The birthing process can take up to seven hours, according to National Geographic.

Are alpacas good pets?

Most alpacas make very good pets if they are treated well and the owners are realistic in their expectations. It is possible to have a single alpaca, but it is not a pleasant existence for the animal. Alpacas are herd animals and are instinctively gregarious, as are other domestic livestock.
