Transcript of Llamas

They are a type of camel. Llamas spit to discipline young. An average male llama weighs about 200 pounds, but can carry a load weighing two-thirds that amount on its back, for about 15-20 miles a day across mountain terrain. Llamas were used by the Incas to transport silver from their mountain mines. Llama hair is not used for weaving because it is too coarse. Llamas and alpacas are often crossed to get an animal that produces hair that is both sturdier and softer than either of the parents' hair. Llamas are long-legged
hoofed mammals whose
members have an even
amount of toes. llamas only
stand about
four feet at the
shoulder. Llamas
By Chloe 4. All camelids (types of camels) have a cleft in their upper lip, and all have the ability to withstand extremes of heat and cold. Usually only male llamas are used for the long pack trains, while the females are kept for breeding. A single young is born after a time between fertilization and birth of about 11 months. The maximum life-span is about 20 years. Llamas have been domesticated since the Inca civilization by the Peruvian Indians, who still keep large herds. While the fur provides material for rugs, rope, and cloth, the main use of this animal is as a beast of burden, especially in mining areas. 9. Llamas live in herds, owned by the indigenous population, on the high plains of the Andes Mts. and can work at altitudes that most animals cannot tolerate. 10. Llamas are intelligent and can learn simple tasks after a few repetitions. When using a pack, llamas can carry about 25% to 30% of their body weight for 5-8 miles. 8.

Llamas which are well-socialized and trained to halter and lead after weaning are very friendly and pleasant to be around. They are extremely curious and most will approach people easily. 12. When correctly reared, llamas spitting at a human is a rare thing 14. Like other camelids, the llama walks on enlarged sole pads, with only the tips of the hooves touching the ground, in the llama these pads are moveable and help give grip on rocky and gravelly terrain.
