One class of Maltese schoolchildren were given a memorable in-class field excursion when they unexpectedly had front-row seats in an up close and personal experience with a wild animal.

And not just any wild animal - but an actual alpaca.

Anton Cutajar from L- Arka ta' Noe, a wildlife sanctuary, brought in a two-year-old male alpaca - and the kids loved it.

Bjorn the alpaca can be seen curiously exploring the classroom, at one point even taking the teacher's stand, before settling into his favourite position in the middle of the room.

The children scream and squeal as he makes his rounds, and a few braver kids even put their hands out to pet and feed Bjorn.
