Llamas are as strong, if not stronger, than horses. They can be saddled with loads between 50 to 75 pounds and can walk with a load this heavy up to 20 miles.
Llamas have ears that are rather long and slightly curved inward. They have two-toed feet that have leathery bottom pads and movable toes that give them good balance on rocky trails. Llamas have a short tail and their hair is long, woolly, and soft. They have very well-developed senses of eyesight, hearing, and smell. Their ears are large and cupped to give them extra sensitivity to any small sounds. While grazing, their ears point in the direction a sound is coming from.
Status in the Wild
Llamas are mostly domesticated, and therefore, live mostly with people and not in the wild.
