Does a llama or alpaca spit?
Yes, llamas and alpacas do spit. It is VERY nasty!
Llamas spit out of irritation and over food, they generally spit at other llamas.
Not all alpacas spit.
A llama can spit around 45 feet while an alpaca can only spit around 10 feet so a llama can spit farther.
The difference between llama wood and alpaca wool is that the alpaca is much finer.
Alpaca fur is more valuable than llama. Though, some llama hair is of higher quality than alpaca.
A cross between an alpaca and a llama is not always called a huarizo or dozer. A cross between an alpaca and a llama can sometimes be called a llapaca.
9 out of 10 times the Llama will win because it is bigger then your average Alpaca.
Yes, llama spit is extremely poisonous
Alpaca wool has a higher micron count, meaning it is of better quality than most llama wool. Generally alpaca wool is more valuable than llama wool.
yes it can. i have an alpaca named Jim and he is very tame. make sure you wear a face mask on your first few training days, though, cos they do spit. I bloody well hope so because if not I've been riding a bloody llama to work ;)
A baby alpaca is called a cria. A baby llama is a Cria as well
You can measure the micron diameter of the raw fibre. Llama wool is notably smaller in its diameter than is alpaca wool.
Yes, llamas and alpacas can cross breed. It usually results in a "mini-llama" with a llama looking head on an alpaca size body. Huarizo is the technical term for the cross between a male alpaca and a female llama. Misti is the term for the cross of a female alpaca and a male llama. If the cria (baby) resembles a llama it's called a warilla. If it resembles an alpaca it's called a T'aqa. These… Read More
The combination of llama spit, urine, and blood
These different types of wool are produced from two different animals. The micrometer measurement for llama fibres is 30-40, while alpaca fibres measure 10-15 micrometers. Alpaca fleece is desirable for needlework and clothing while some llama fleece is suitable for carpets and lead ropes. Finer llama fleece is also desirable for needlework.

It looks like a LLAMA.
the llama and alpaca
Llama and Alpaca are used.
The Alpaca, a small domesticated species of South American camelid that is very similar to the Llama
I believe the type of llama you are referring to would be the Alpaca. Like the llama, they are from South America and are raised for their wool.
All animals that eat meat can eat an alpaca but if you want to know what can KILL an alpaca then it is usually a wolf, coyote, mountain lion, dogs, and cougars. If you have a Llama in the heard though Coyotes normally won't attack because the Llama scares them off.
You might be able to fit a small llama halter onto a large alpaca, but it would be dicey. Llamas are approximately twice the size of alpacas and tend to be more docile, so it would be better to get a halter meant for an alpaca if that is what you wish to use it on.
alpaca and llama skins
you could be thinking of an alpaca, or a camel
The Llama and the Alpaca.
Both are called wool, and are combined with the name of the animal that produced the wool. Thus, Llama wool and alpaca wool are both proper descriptors, respectively, of the fibre produced from these animals.
9 to 10 feet.

Alpaca or a Llama
a female alpaca is called a fampa with comes from the word fampatronailia which means to spit or spitting cow
Yes, but generally at each other, to establish dominance or settle disputes over who gets to eat and who has to wait their turn. Humans get spit on when caught in the crossfire of alpaca-on-alpaca spitting, which tends to be aimed in any and all directions, not just as the offending alpaca. The spit itself is not the same thing as our spit--it's a green, foul smelling mix of whatever they've eaten recently, usually grass… Read More
An alpaca ranges from about 100 to 175 pounds and is about half the size of a llama, and is about 36 inches (3 feet) tall at the shoulders.
An alpaca is an alpaca. It shouldn't be confused with a llama, because these two animals are actually different species, though closely related. See the related links below for more info.
Her name is Tina. She's a llama, not an alpaca.
Alpacas are in the camel/llama family, I hope this helps =P
I think its called an "alpaca"
The Inca domesticated llama, alpaca, and guinea pigs.
Not a chance. Llama spit is made of grass, grass, and more regurgitated grass. The exact same stuff that is in your cattle's stomachs. I think your cattle will be just fine. If you don't melt when you get spit on, they won't either.
only about 2 inches
I dont thing so...

Llama, Alpaca, guinea pig. Condor.
