You read the title correct. Yes, spitting llamas. Like humans spitting. Or country like farm boys spitting some tobacco. It’s the same exact concept minus the tobacco. I mean you’ve probably heard the stories and thought to yourself, there is no way this could be true, could it? Well it is. This is documented proof that if you get in a llamas’ face, step on it’s turf or roll up to fast, it will spit on you. No, it’s not just a small spat. It’s a full on, mouth full of saliva, guns hot and coming your way, type of projectile. If you look at other videos than this one, sometimes it’s a sharp shooter spit and sometimes it’s shotgun, good spread type spewage.
This then begs the question, why do llamas spit? Is it for fun or is there some sort of rhyme or reason behind everything? It could be said that some are just crabbier than others. A few of them could be, the old people on the porch yelling at the little youth “terrorizing” the neighborhood, sort of llama. They could possibly have a short fuse and no time for tourists and their cameras. Llamas can hock a nasty one up to ten feet away. This is mainly used to warn predators, or anything for that nature, to back off. If a llamas’ ears are pinned back, head is pointed and he’s staring you right between the eyes, you know what’s coming your way. A duck and cover is in order. Regardless of the reason just know that llamas can be fierce some times but mostly will just ruin your makeup. If you want to avoid a bad day at the zoo and even worse day with someone catching it on video just stay aware and stay dry.
