Llamas! Learn About Llamas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Llamas! Learn About Llamas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Llamas) - Becky Wolff

4 Stars, borrow it



So this week, for four days, I had to Telework because of the US Africa summit which is happening in D.C. (I work downtown and my office building being used). So because I didn’t have to commute, I could sit at home and read near my computer which is why there were a bunch of Look and Learns done..  Today is the last day of telecommuting and so this will probably be the last Look and Learn until my regularly scheduled telework next week. I just felt like reading the one on Llamas. Maybe because they are spunky like me. Only I don’t normally spitt and hiss.

 

Llamas are actually pretty cute.  The pictures were really nice and only rarely pixelated.  The facts were really strong and I actually learned something. Probably one of the best in the series.




Did you know?

 

The llama is widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures.

The height of a full grown Llama is 5.5 to 6 feet tall

The llama weighs between 280 and 450 pounds

Llamas can live 20-30 years old.

LLamas appear to have originated from the central plains of North America (Did not know this!)

Llamas regurgitate their food as they chew it, like cows.
