Guard llama

A guard llama is a llama, guanaco, alpaca or hybrid that is used in farming to protect sheep, goats, hens or other livestock from coyotes, dogs, foxes and other predators. In the past, a single gelded (castrated) male was recommended. In more recent years it has been discovered that single, unbred females make better and safer guardians. They also do not pose the risk of attempting copulation (hence smothering) or chasing the smaller livestock.

When my llamas get upset about anything they are likely to spit. First the ears fall back, then their bottom lip fills with green slim that they have brought up from this stomach. If you are lucky (really, unlucky) they may just spit this grotesque substance all over your face.
