Surfing alpaca makes waves in Peru

You'd normally find an alpaca in the hot, dry mountains of South America, but this one's taken to the water!

An alpaca is a little bit like a goat, which is why you might be surprised to see this one riding a surf board.

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

Domingo his owner has surfed with parrots, hamsters and even cats and thought he would try surfing with another animal that was different.
