The animal that looks like a retarded centipede that grew up near a nuclear waste dump is NOT a llama, but an alpaca!
Alpacas are social herd animals that live in family groups consisting of a territorial alpha male, females and their young. They are gentle, elegant, inquisitive, intelligent and observant. As they are a prey animal, they are cautious and nervous if they feel threatened. They like having their own space and may not like an unfamiliar alpaca or human getting close, especially from behind. They warn the herd about intruders by making sharp, noisy inhalations that sound like a high pitch burro bray. The herd may attack smaller predators with their front feet, and can spit and kick. Due to the soft pads on their feet, the impact of a kick is not as dangerous as that of a hoofed animal, yet it still can give quite a bruise, and the pointed nails can inflict cuts.
Ohhh so it’s like a spiffed up llama… or the illicit love child of a collie, llama and a Star Wars character… in short, it’s classified under camelid
The alpaca IS the swiss knife of weird animals because it’s gentle, elegant, inquisitive, intelligent blah blah blah,
And they sound like a clutch that doesn’t… bite… =/
*khack kakkkk khackkkkk!*
Not all alpacas spit, but all are capable. "Spit" is somewhat euphemistic. While occasionally the projectile contains only air and a little saliva, they also commonly bring up acidic stomach contents (generally a green grassy mix) and project it onto their chosen target. Spitting is mostly reserved for other alpacas, but an alpaca will occasionally spit at humans that, for example, take away food.
For alpacas, spitting results in what is called "sour mouth." Sour mouth is characterized by a loose-hanging lower lip and a gaping mouth. This is caused by the stomach acids and unpleasant taste of the contents as they pass out of the mouth.
Some alpacas will spit when looked at, others will never spit — their personalities are very individualized and there is no hard and fast rule in terms of social behavior, although there is often a group leader, and a group trailer/runt that is picked on by others.
So they’re unique! You are able to differentiate them based on their spitting capabilities. Woohoo!
On Star Wars:
This alpaca looks like Luke Skywalker in The Empire Strikes Back while he was in Hoth.
On Being Creepy:
Well, if you ever find yourself walking alone in the fields of Peru or Chile in the MIDDLE of the day… you don’t want THIS to happen to you:
That’s the scariest **** I’ve ever seen in my life…
A GANG OF ALPACAS… they’re hairy and they have knees. *shudder*
These guys are gonna mess you up.
*One cool thing is that if a llama and an alpaca mate, you get this:
a huarizo! woohooo
