The Al Packa is a Maxis-made creature, present in the final game. It is based on the animals of the Camelidae family of real animals. The name is taken from "alpaca", though the Spore creature has significantly less fur.
It possesses Shortensnout mouth, Coygamine eyes, Elfinmagick senses, and Cloppity feet.
- The Al Packa is part of a running theme in Maxis games, where alpacas or llamas have many references in games such as Sim City or The Sims.
- In the Middle East, Al- is often used in surnames and city names, such as the similar-sounding Al-Raqqah.
