The llama (Lama glama) is a large camelid that originated in North America and then later on moved on to South America.

Llamas who are well-socialized and trained to halter and lead after weaning are very friendly and pleasant to be around.

They are extremely curious and most will approach people easily.

However llamas who are bottle-fed or over-socialised and over-handled as youngsters can become extremely difficult to handle when mature, when they will begin to treat humans as they treat each other, which is characterized by bouts of spitting, kicking and neck wrestling.

When correctly reared spitting at a human is a rare thing.
