5 Kl Llamas

  1. 1. The World Of Llamas
  2. 2. About The Author My name is Ashley. I am 11  years old. I enjoy shopping, and learning about exotic animals. A hobby of mine is playing the saxophone. I’m writing about the llama because they are unique and different. Llamas are very interesting animals. Llamas are also very cute. I mean, who can resist their adorable faces?
  3. 3. Who Am I? I am a llama. I’m a great pack animal. I can carry 25-30 percent of my own weight for 5-8 miles! I have two-toed feet that keep me nice and sturdy. I can’t give adults rides on my back, but I love giving little kids rides. I almost always have soft fur.
  4. 4. The Early Years When a llama is born they’re called a “ Cria”. A cria is born with short soft fur. Since llamas are mammals, crias are born alive. A cria is usually up and nursing in about a hour and a half. When a cria grows up it will grow to be 45” at the shoulder, and 5ft at the neck and head, it’ll weigh 280 pounds and it will live to be about 15-25 years old
  5. 5. Habitat Sweet Habitat Llamas are found on mountains, and farms. Some people even keep them as pets. Llamas don’t hibernate, they only move up and down the mountain. In the summer the llamas move to the top of the mountain where it’s cooler. In the winter, llamas move to the bottom of the mountain where it’s warmer.
  6. 6. What’s On The Menu? Llamas are herbivores. They eat grass,herbs, and other plants. Llamas are ruminants, which means that their stomach has three parts to it. They partially chew their food, then later it regurgitates, or comes back up as cud.
  7. 7. Making Tracks Llamas have two-toed feet with toenails on them, and pads on the bottom. You can find these tracks in the mud on a farm, or in dirt on a mountain.
  8. 8. Simply Irresistible Llamas do have a voice. Usually they hum or make weird noises. When llamas are mad, angry, overheated, or trying to protect their family, they scream, spit, and kick.
  9. 9. Where In The World? In the year 1564 B.C, Spanish explorers found the first llama on the Andes Mountain. The Spanish explorers told their people that there was close to 20,000 of them on the mountain!Even though they were found in South America,they are sometimes found on farms in North America too!
  10. 10. Did You Know?….. 1. Llamas spit as their way of saying “ BUG OFF! “ 2. Llamas are related to camels. 3. Llamas can be white, brown, spotted, and a solid color, 4. Llamas have bucked teeth, big ears, and a stubby tail.
