Brinsbury College, located about 40 minutes drive south-west of Gatwick Airport in England, is the birthplace of three adorable crias:

The adorable trio of crias – the name for baby alpacas – arrived within days of each other last month, much to the joy of students and staff at the college.

Little Maria has the honour of being the very first cria to be born at Brinsbury – a surprise premature arrival, she kept staff on their toes for the first few days but is now flourishing under the watchful eyes of mum Mia.
