Bearded Dragon are pleased to announce the arrival of a newborn cria Monday 6th March at 7am , immediately dubbed “Pocahontas” which means "Little Wanton," playful, frolicsome little girl. “After fierce storms threatened the alpacas lives on Friday night when a large gum tree crash landed in their pen, it was wonderful to start the week with new life. The alpaca herd are absolutely thrilled and protect her vigilantly, she is just gorgeous and so friendly.” Says Monique Gregory Managing Director Bearded Dragon. “Pocahontas weighed in at approximately 6kg, and her free loving parents were worried they would never have offspring. She came as a message of peace, a true miracle just in time for our Easter Festival that attracts hundreds of kids, we all know who will be the favorite that weekend!”says Ms Gregory.
The females have one baby a year after a pregnancy that lasts 11 months. The birthing process usually occurs in the morning hours, so the baby, called a cria, gets warmer and dries with the sun. This way it gets ready to join the herd in no time and thirty minutes later is wobbling after the mother. The colors are complex but predictable and these stunning animals are becoming very popular for their silky fur for weaving. Pocahontus joins 10 other alpacas at the Bearded Dragon, visit her sometime soon on the corner of Tamborine Mtn Rd & Beenleigh/Beaudsert Rd Tamborine.
