There was someone there who was selling some of his super cute paco vicunas. He had three of them and they finance.

Now I know fiber animals can get expensive but good grief that's a fully loaded mid-size car your buy LOL Yes I realize in the long run you cna make money from them buy breading and selling their fiber.

:shock: You can Buy Vicunas? I figured they would have to be protected as they're so rare. *Starts Plotting a Vicuna Farm* ;)

It looks like the closest you can get is a vicuna/alpaca cross called the paco-vicuna.
