Llamas are mostly very friendly animals. They make great pets for anyone on at least 1 acre, and have many uses including guarding against fox attacks, taking on walks, hikes, and picnics as well as putting a buggy on them.

They are very curious animals in that whenever they see anything new or different, they go up to it or them! Hence this first photo, the llama is "kissing" the newcomers.

They can be bred at any time (induced ovulators), take 11 months to have the baby, and generally only have one at a time.

This next image is of two 3 week old Crias (name for babies)

The next photo is of a cria, who I taught to go inside, and she has a halter and lead on, as I also taught them how to walk "nicely" from a very young age.

They are also helpful to cheer up the sick as is seen in my house.

They are relatively inexpensive to buy, and are available starting from about the same price as a good dog.

Llamas can be bred for personality and wool quality. The wool can be spun and used to knit.

Llama's are a most delightful pet!
