Caring for Llamas and Alpacas: A Health & Management Guide


We own 2 llamas and don't have any other experience with livestock. This book has helped us many times. One time one of our llamas was shivering and sure enough, I looked up "shivering" and found out that llamas can get hypothermia! So followed some of the suggestions and came through that little excitement just fine. This book has lots of suggestions and illustrations and helps me know what to do for just about anything that comes up for our llama "boys".

Gold of the Andes (2 Vol. Set): The Llamas, Alpacas, Vicuñas and Guanacos of South America

These books, volume 1 and 2, relate the habitat of the South American Camelids. God created the llamas of these cold regions for the good of the inhabitants, who without this animal would have a very difficult life, since these are very arid lands where there is no cotton for clothes, like in warm climates, and to have to purchase it elsewhere for so many people would be impossible. For which reason, God compensated for the barrenness of the uninhabited punas and paramos of these sierras by putting there such a large number of these docile animals that they cannot be counted, for they have been all around there since anciest times, and were all the wealth of all the mountain Indians; for they clothed themselves in their wool and made shoes from their skins; and so wore nothing on their bodies other than what they obtained from the llamas, eating their meat, and using them as beasts of burden to carry loads back and forth.
