Llamas belong to the camel family, although they have no dorsal humps like the Old World camels Dromedary and Bactrian camel. But like all camels, llamas have a split and very movable upper lip.
They have been bred as domestic animals in South America for thousands of years and are descended from the wild guanaco. As usual with domestic animals there are also with llamas many colors and even dotted skins.
Before the arrival of the Europeans in the New World there were no horses and donkeys. The llamas of the Andean peoples were the only bred pack animals on the entire American double continent. In addition, they deliver wool and meat to the population until today.
Llamas signal their mood with tail and ears. If the ears stand up and the tail hangs downward, the llama feels well. However, if the ears are put on and the tail stands high, then the llama is tense. If gurgling noises become audible, caution is advised.
However, llamas spit usually only among each other, if it concerns the ranking. Humans are spat on only rarely. But when they spit, they hit!
