Llamas are a domesticated camelid from South America that are primarily used as pack animals. Llamas can be almost 6 feet tall at the top of the head and weigh between 290 and 440 lbs. Llamas usually live for 15-25 years, although some live into their 30s.
Llamas usually live in groups. Llamas, when raised properly, can be very friendly around humans. They also are used as guard animals to protect livestock from predators. Llamas are very alert by nature and will start an alarm if they sense anything threatening. They may also try and chase away or attack an intruder - they have even been known to herd the other animals away from the danger.
