An interesting fact about alpacas: Alpacas were almost extinguished due to the Spanish invasion
The Spanish conquistadors invaded Peru and South America during the 16th century during their hunt for Eldorado, the Golden city of the Inca Empire. These conquistadors had demolished everything they found in the Inca Empire while they were left with ruins except the city of Machu Picchu. They are located higher up the mountains; the city was hidden from the Spanish and left intact, where the town was rediscovered again by Hiram Bingham, an American explorer, in 1911.
