Need a Guard Llama?

Llamas make excellent guards for herds of small animals. They are very social and will ‘adopt’ a group of sheep or goats as their own herd. Then they will protect the herd by chasing off coyotes and other predators.

More fun facts:

One of the ways llamas communicate is by humming.

Llamas are smart. They can distinguish between the neighbor’s dog and a predatory coyote.


Llamas are the camel’s hippie cousins. They belong to a group of animals called camelids that also includes alpacas. All camelids spit or stick out their tongue when they are annoyed.​
