Surfing alpaca makes waves

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

You'd normally find an alpaca in the hot, dry mountains of South America.

But this one in Peru has decided it's just as comfortable on a surf board in the sea as it is grazing on a mountainside.

His owner has spent months getting him used to the water - and his special alpaca wetsuit.

And now he seems right at home on the surf!
