If you enjoy being around animals you will love the beautiful and personable llamas. With their dignity, natural curiosity and intelligence they make perfect companions. Llamas have been plagued with the unfair reputation of spitting. It is true that they spit, however the vast majority of llamas spit only at other llamas and not at people. Spitting is used by both alpacas and llamas to settle arguments, establish dominance and pecking order, tell males that females are pregnant, discipline crias and express fear or discomfort.
Llamas have primarily been used as pack animals while alpacas are fibre animals. Having had a very close relationship with people for a very long time, llamas have an easy going nature, willingness to please, intelligence and a gentle nature.
