WHAT IS A LlAMA?


Llamas are members of the camelid family. They reach an average weight of 250-500 pounds and have a lifespan of 15-25 years. Llamas are also 5 - 7 feet in length. The gestation period is 350 days, resulting in a single baby (cria) weighing between 20-35 pounds. Llamas are intelligent, sensitive animals and are quick learners. Llamas are 5 - 7 feet in length and weight 200 - 300 pounds.



Llamas have thick, wooly coats that are warm and practically waterproof. Their color may vary from all white to all black. Llamas thrive in altitudes above 8,000 feet. Llamas have padded feet which allow them a sure-footed walk on slippery rock surfaces or sandy areas. Llamas in captivity can be very aggressive and sometimes spit, kick and bite. Llamas have a lifespan of 20 - 30 years. Llamas are cousins to the camel. Llamas are still used today as they have been for centuries: as a food source, pack animal and a source of wool for income.

Llamas are orininally from North America from about 40 millions years ago according to the fossilized records. During the ice age one group left for Asia and evolved into the camel. The other group moved to South America and settled in Chile and Peru. The Incas used the Llamas as domesticated pack animals for food and transportation 6000 years ago and they are the world's oldest domesticated animal. The uses of Llamas never ceases to amaze me. They are used for packing, pulling carts, wool, parades and Llama shows, golf caddies, pets and lifestock protection of sheep. The natural lifespan for Llamas is 15 to 25 years and they grow to about 3-4 feet in height. They usually weigh between 250 and 450 pounds. They also come in black, gray, brown and my favourite color beige. Llamas also spit to show their rank in the herd or to chase away other non-native Llamas. Llamas are also very tame and do not spit or kick most humans unless they have been abused by them. They also have padded feet so even if they did kick you it wouldn't hurt as much as a cow or horse kick. Llamas are also too small to ride but children can ride them. They are primarily used as a packing animal.
