Thunder is one of two alpacas that came to us from another sanctuary when they retired. These boys are approximately 15 years old and are calm and curious creatures.
He is a gentle fellow and enjoys spending leisurely afternoons in the meadows during the nice weather. He’s not afraid of a little precipitation and has been observed several times standing still in the rain with a kooky grin!
When Thunder is really happy, he gallops in the most awkward way possible, his long legs bending and bouncing.
Thunder came from an alpaca farm but because his fleece was not grade A, he lost his value to the farmer. We don’t know exactly how or when, but he ended up at Constance Creek Wildlife Refuge several years ago before coming to us. Thunder and his buddy Spike are a dynamic duo for sure and are much loved by many! They are goofy and silly and strangely like to wrap themselves up in kiddie pools in the summer. We have no idea how they can fit!
