I Want a Llama!
Useful information for anyone
considering the
ownership of a llama.
Presented by
The International Lama Registry
People are becoming familiar with llamas
throughout North America, but the most
common question asked of llama owners is,
“What are they used for?” If you become
familiar llama characteristics, the many uses jof
llamas become more easily understood. Llamas
are classed as domestic (not exotic) livestock
by the USDA and are owned and raised for
many purposes.
Llamas are very intelligent, independent,
aloof, curious, gentle, relatively easy to train
and they exhibit a lot of common sense. Once
you own a llama you will no longer question
their use, as you will have fallen in love with a
very special friend.
Traditionally, llamas make superior pack
animals for a picnic, a day trip or an extended
camping expedition. Llamas have also been
successfully trained to caddy on golf courses.
A mature, trained pack llama can carry ap-
Llamas are sure-footed and are environmentally friendly. Their two-toed feet with
nails and leathery bottoms, similiar to a
dog’s pad, do less environmental damage
than a hiking boot. They also require very
little carried food on the trail in comparison
with other pack animals. This and their
tendency to browse rather than graze make
their impact on natural forage minimal.
Many people own llamas as companion animals or pets because their
calm nature, gentleness and intelligence make them a non-demanding pleasure to be around and
train. Llamas are especially good

A Brief History of the Llama
About 40 million years ago the ancestor of the llama roamed
the central plains of North America. This ancient camel-like
creature eventually migrated to Asia, Africa and South
America. All members of the camel, or camelid family, are
descendants of this early ancestor. The one-humped dromedary camel evolved in Northern Africa and the Middle East,
the two-humped Bactrian evolved in what is now Mongolia.
The South American camelids - llama, alpaca, vicuña and
guanaco - found their niche in the high plains of the Andes.
The wild relatives of the llama and alpaca are the vicuña and
guanaco. Unlike the llamas and alpacas the vicuña and guanaco always have the same color pattern . They have a reddish brown body with light cream underbelly and grey face.
Both are highly prized for their exquisite fiber. The vicuña is
currently on the endangered species list but is making a
strong comeback. In the past few years some guanacos have
been raised in semi-captive flocks and sheared once a year for
Domesticated more than 5000 years ago, the llama and alpaca
are among the earliest domesticated herd animals. For the
native people of the South American Andes, the llama was a
beast of burden and a source of fiber and meat. Even the
pelleted manure was used as fuel in the harsh environment of
the altiplano where no trees grow. The alpaca was bred
primarily to produce fine fiber.
Many ancient rituals and traditions developed from
the close bond between the native people of South
America and their llamas. This close relationship
has endured to the present time. A typical Andean
family might own only a handful of llamas or alpacas but each animal is special to its owner. A
visitor to a small rebaño (herd) will find the llamas
decorated with brightly colored yarn sewn into their
ears. The yarn tassels are used not only as decoration but also as a means of animal identification. It
is not uncommon to see llamas owned by several
different families grazing together. Typically, the
wife and younger children take responsibility for the
llamas’ welfare and are present for herding and

Physical Characteristics and Traits
Body Type and Color: Llamas come in many different shapes
and sizes. The color, length and texture of their wool may
vary greatly. Wool may be white, cream, light brown,
medium brown, reddish brown, dark brown, black, gray
brown and silver gray. Body patterning may be solid,
marked, spotted, shaded or pinto. Llamas are clean
animals and have very little body odor.
Care & Feeding: The harsh Andean environment made the
llama a hardy, quick, athletic animal capable of self
protection and remarkably disease resistant. They need
basic shelter from wind, rain, cold and heat. Llamas,
being very sophisticated, are communal dung heap
users, which means that they all use the same manure
pile, a habit that minimizes the human labor involved in
caring for them. Llamas are browsers and eat grasses.
Because of their efficient digestive systems, they are
relatively economical to feed. Feed costs average 50
cents a day. They can be fed as much good grass hay
and/or pasture as they want. Fresh water should be
available at all times.
Spitting: Although llamas do not normally spit at
humans, they may do so if they feel threatened or if
they have been mishandled or abused. Like all
members of the camelid family, llamas spit to
maintain their pecking order in the herd, to protect
the best eating spot, to discipline a youngster, or to
reject unwanted advances from an amorous male.
The green material is simply regurgitated cud and,
while it does have an odor, it does no harm.
Communication: A llama commonly makes three noises: a
hum (called praying in Peru), a shrill alarm whinny (a
warning of predators), and orgling (a loud gargle which
males make when breeding). A llama also communicates
with body language - the position of its tail, ears, neck
and body posture.
Adult Weight: 200-500 lbs.
Adult Height: 5 to 6+ feet at
the head
Life Span: 15 years in South
America, but up to 20 to
30 years in the U.S.,
because of better nutrition
and health care.
Homework Before You Buy
Fiber: Llama fiber is hollow, so it is lighter
and warmer than sheep wool. Since it
does not contain lanolin, many people
who are allergic to sheep wool can wear
clothing made from llama wool.
Before you purchase your first llama, it is strongly
recommended that you do your homework. First
and foremost, you should love animals and be
willing to make a commitment to this addition to
your family.
Reproduction: Females do not have a heat
cycle but are induced ovulators (copulation causing ovulation), meaning that
llamas can be bred and produce babies at
any time of the year. Females may be
bred at 12-24 months of age and males
become fertile between 2-3 years of age.
Average gestation is 350 days with a
single baby normally delivered from a
standing mother without assistance,
usually during the daylight hours.
Successful twinning is rare. A newborn
llama (cria) averages 20-35 pounds at
birth and is weaned at about 5 months of
Herd Animal: Llamas are highly social
animals and need the companionship of
other llamas. Some have been kept
successfully with a companion goat,
horse or donkey, but llamas are happiest
with another of their own kind.
Price: Prices vary depending on the region of
the country, quality, pedigree, and
training. A wise buyer visits several
farms or ranches before buying.
Transportation: Llamas can be easily
transported in a van or a covered pickup,
as well as horse trailers. Llamas like to
lie down during travelling and, therefore,
should not be tied, as that could result in

Why Transfer Your Llama's
Certificate? The ownership
of animals is closely monitored to insure accurate
breeding records. The
Registry requires the signatures of the owner of the sire at the time
of conception, and the owner of the dam both at the time of
conception and at the birth of the cria. Not transferring an animal
may result in confusion or difficulty in registering a cria.
What Services Does The Registry Provide? The most important service the Registry provides is the prompt and accurate
documentation of lineage. In addition, the Registry is a research
center for members wishing extended pedigree information on
multiple generations, statistical data, herd lists, progeny lists,
country of origin, age and color - invaluable tools in a breeding
program. Statistical data provided by the ILR enables the entire
llama community to monitor industry growth patterns.
Who Governs The Registry?
The ILR is governed by a
democratically elected five-member Board of Directors who each
serve a five-year term, with one director being elected each year.
Members help determine the Registry policies through their
elected representatives.
