I'm sure they'll be OK but that doesn't mean they won't fuss at each other. Teddy and Laddie have been together for years. But they still get pissy even though they are the only friends they have. Teddy will lay his neck over Laddie's neck, Laddie will scream and spit at Teddy. Happens almost every evening if I don't get their maintenance pellets of to their bins fast enough to suit them. I don't know how many times I've told them to knock it off and shut the F up.

I heard alpaca screaming for a second at most last night around 10-11pm.
Everyone is alive, unscathed this morning. Well, new guy found more thorns to get stuck to him, but otherwise fine.

I have heard people say they can cut each other up badly or even kill. I haven't gone looking for any fighting teeth to trim.

Derrik was chasing him & "mounting" him trying to shove him down the first day. He's 6-8in taller than the other two, so lots more weight. That's why he got kicked out.
