The current population of Llamas Llama glama and Alpacas Vicugna pacos in South America is estimated to be about 7 million. Llamas protect themselves by spitting bad smelling saliva into their enemies face. Often used to establish a pecking order at meal times. They don’t have hooves, their feet comprise of soft leathery pads with two toenails which make them sure-footed and cause less damage to the ground than a hikers boot.
Llamas are used as golf caddies, for carrying camping equipment and as guards for sheep. Weighing 280 to 450 pounds and can carry about a quarter of their body weight. So a 400 pound male llama can carry about 100 pounds on a trek of 10 to 12 miles with no problem.
The llama is becoming increasingly popular in Western Europe and America as a pet and for their superior quality wool.
