Llamas As Pets – What You Need To Know

By Kerri Smith

If anyone would ask me what llama’s were all about it would be two words…peace & serenity. I’m blessed to have these wonderful animals in my life, although I would never have imagined I would actually have llamas as pets (along with my 2 rottweiler’s, 3 horses, 7 cats & miniature donkey, Jeremiah).

Argentine Llamas & Their History
High in the Andes Mountains, llamas have been helping people carry their wares for thousands of years. The llama (pronounced “yama”), is a member of the camel family, and is one of the oldest domesticated animals. Their thick coats of wool and honed survival instincts enable them to thrive in one of the most extreme climates on earth.
