Dunham unfortunately even females that are over handled/ bottled fed can get the same syndrome but it is much more common in males – this animal is certainly acting like a dominant male Teacher llama ain’t got time for your drama. but it’s hard to tell from the video if its castrated or a female – whatever it is, although usually docile, alpacas/alpaca-llama crosses and llamas that act like that can hurt you
Hot Teacher llama ain’t got time for your drama design!
Thats a lie. Its a female for one. Two shes in heat. If you don’t know something, dont make false allegations. its not trying to hurt the man. If it were that man would not have been able to run away. Teacher llama ain’t got time for your drama. Looks more playful than deadly here. why did you ask such a silly question? are you just trolling at this point? you dont need to get hit by an animal to tell when an animal is behaving dangerously or aggressively And when it is not.
Actually I have raised Alpacas and a few llamas for over 25 years, and yes, I have been “chest-butted” by males and I have had females “play” with me – I know the difference. Very very common in bottle fed bull calves as well. We’ve unfortunately experienced this first hand and had to rehome him as a one ton bull that is wildly and playfully aggressive is highly dangerous to people and other animals.
Show me your favorite color!
that’s what everyone used to think but the problem is, as another person mentioned earlier, an alpaca or llama that is bottle fed or even is over handled by humans as a baby, does not see humans as humans but more as other alpacas/llamas. Like other species, males fight to establish dominance. They do so by showing sexual posturing (mounting) chest butting and biting, and even though they don’t have top teeth, they can do damage especially if their fighting teeth (hooked fangs they get on each side of the mouth) have not been blunted.
Bottle fed females usually do not get as aggressive but will “jump” at humans too, and like cows, females will sometimes mount other females who are receptive – btw alpacas and llamas lie down or kush to breed once a male jumps on a female; so males will try to force other alpacas or people they are trying to dominate or breed on the ground. Females usually just spit to to show dominance over feed ect. but you really don’t want to get covered with regurgitated green stomach mush either.
