One dad just discovered alpacas and social media can't stop laughing

We often learn new things when we travel: we see new places, meet new people, try new foods. What about discovering an animal you had no idea existed? That's what happened to one father, and his reaction is adorable.

Twitter user and UI Artist Alexandria Neonakis received texts from her father while in Peru and she couldn't help but share them on Twitter:

"My dad is in Peru having a melt down over alpacas," she said.

She was not kidding: Her dad called the alpaca the softest, most huggable animal he's ever encountered.

Her father's face next to the alpaca is pure bliss:

Not only is Neonakis' dad and the alpaca adorable together, but the Internet seemed to think so too: her tweet went viral and gained thousands of likes and retweets.
