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 is carnivorous and has little to no fur.
It possesses 10 vertebrae, a Shortensnout mouth, Coygamine eyes, Elfinmagick ears, Phatella front legs, Steatopiggy back legs, 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.
