Here are some cute Llama facts that make me happy:
What Do They Look Like?
Llamas are related to camels. In fact, you might think they look like furry camels without humps. Adult llamas can weigh between 250 and 450 pounds. They stand about four feet tall at the shoulder, and about six feet tall if you measure them from the tops of their heads.
Their body is covered with wool that comes in different colors and different designs. A llama’s coat could be solid or spotted and can range in color from white to brown to black.
A llama’s long ears stick up in the air, and their long faces might remind you of a horse’s long face. But, a llama is different than a horse because a llama doesn’t have hooves; instead, it has leathery pads on the bottoms of its feet and two big toenails.
Where Do They Live?
Llamas can be found living all around the world, but they originally came from the mountain areas of South America. There are some wild llamas, but most have been domesticated, which means they have been tamed by people.
What Do They Eat?
If you were to take a llama to your favorite restaurant, it would order a salad, not a cheeseburger. Do you know why? Because llamas are herbivores, which means they only eat plants, not meat.
