Antelope are herbivores, which means they eat only plants.  Although there is 1 odd exception: some duiker species have been known to kill and eat insects, small mammals, and birds. The majority of antelope tend to be content to munch on bushes and smaller trees or graze on grass.

All antelope have horns; in some species they are only found on the males, whereas in others, such as gazelles, both males and females have them. The horns are made of a bony core encased in a hard material made largely of keratin (the same substance our fingernails are made of!).

Antelopes are in the family Bovidae.  A group of antelope is called a herd. Both the male and female antelope have horns, but those of males tend to be larger.

One of the very good books I read was Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library.It is not only a escape game book, but it is also filled with games and puzzles  you can do your self. A good book to read for both readers and game players alike.

Today we are learning about the alpaca which has been tamed and would be considered a farm animal in many areas.  An alpaca (Vicugna pacos) first came from South American.

The alpaca has long hair and is a mammal.  It is related to and looks like a llama.  It is used mostly for its wool.   There are two types of alpaca – the Surialpaca and the Huacaya alpaca

Occasionally you will find an alpaca in a zoo or on a farm.  They are fun to watch and touch
