Llamas are likable and lovely! Don’t you agree?
We’ve never seen a Llama and not smiled. They are one of the most lovable-looking creatures. Among one of the most gentle and friendly creatures, Llamas have become more and more popular over the past few years. Interestingly, they are often confused with Alpacas. But they are definitely their own animal and are good-natured enough not to be offended by this mistake.
So why do people love Llamas so much?
Yes, like you we were equally curious. Hence, we tried to decode this mystery with some of these top Llama facts to show why these furry buddies are so highly regarded.
Llamas are highly intelligent! They learn very quickly and can perform tasks after only doing them a few times.
Llama the Movie Star! In The Emperor’s New Groove the star is a Llama. The self-centered Emperor Kuzco is transformed into a Llama and learns important lessons about life.
They’re all ears! The main difference between Llamas and Alpacas is their ears. Alpacas have short spear-shaped ears whilst our lovely Llama friends have longer banana-shaped ears. So Cute!
Llamas are very loving! Llamas are used as guards for herds of smaller animals and love to adopt and care for animals such as sheep and goats. That’s just nurturing by choice!
How do they communicate? One way that Llamas communicate is through humming.
Do Llamas get annoyed? You can tell if a Llama is upset or annoyed as they stick out their tongue or spit. We forgive them and still love them.
