The best thing that you can do is to visit a working Alpaca farm nearby to explore the needs of Alpaca farming and to get to know more about the animals themselves.

Is this a joke?
Llamas are close relatives of rabbits, and rabbits make for pretty awesome pets especially once you get them litter trained - you can have a whole herd of rabbits frolicking around your home. AND you can adopt them from the local animal shelter for REALLY cheap (like $3) due to rabbit overpopulation. Just be sure to get your bunnies fixed and read up on their care. I've also heard of this being done with guinea pigs. Either way, you'll save on vet care (no need for a large animal vet), food, "purchase" price, housing, etc. If you REALLY get into rabbits, you could eventually consider competing with the ones you raise which is something my siblings did when they were little.

On a final note, it might be illegal to keep a llama as a house pet in your area.
5000 every 2 months cuz water food poop clean home
As much as I know about llamas, is that they are not solitary animals, and need to live in social groups, I think the minimum is 1 male to 2 females.

Price is going to depend on just where you are, and how close you are to a really lllama-farmer.

Typical prices for a llama in the UK look like upwards of 500 GBP.

How would they cope on their own in a family of 5 with a dog?
I am not a Llama farmer, I had some old aquaintances who farmed them, and I am reciting what I was told there, and at a farm show a couple of months ago.

Why do you want one ? They make excellent security guards I'm told....

I want a llama because they are cool. Who would not want a house trained llama?
_CAN_ llamas be house trained? My impression was that most herbivores can't be... but I may be completely wrong.
There're a couple of pubs here with pet sheep.

I wouldn't reveal that to the general public if I were ewe.
.  I'm guessing it has more to do with intelligence than diet. My Aunt has a pet goat that stays inside most of the time. I'm guessing that a llama could be house trained (the few I've seen seem reasonably intelligent), but I don't think you would have much luck with a cow (dumb as rocks).

It would be cool if they could. Just gotta train it not to eat the plants lol...
Do you know how big llamas actually are?

Millawi Legend (author)  Kiteman6 years ago
Up to 6ft tall.
And a lot longer than that, plus wide, hairy, smelly, dribbly and doubly incontinent.

Not a house pet.
My friend at college had a pet male llama. It lived with a horse. Maybe that was why it was always grumpy and spat carrots at my friend's mum.
They're very territorial. And they don't like carrots.....

YOu need a field and at least 2 or 3. It's going to cost. Their not a pet like the cat and dog.

Aww. So i cant have one in my house?
I think the society for animal protection would say "not only no, but heck no."
