Native to South America

Llamas are part of the Camelid family and are cousins to camels and alpacas.  They grow to about 6 feet tall and weigh about 300-450 pounds.  Llamas make excellent guards for herds of small animals and will chase off dogs and coyotes.  Their wool is used to make luxurious fiber.  Our llamas are shorn once a year in the Spring and look really bushy just before their haircut!  Interestingly, llamas’ only way to communicate with one another is by humming!  True to their reputation, when annoyed or threatened, they will stick their tongue out or spit.
