A Llama’s Sex Life

Yep, you read that right. Today I’d like to take the time and talk about a llama’s sex life.

(I mean, who wouldn’t? Look at that sexy face )

We’ll begin with the sexual maturity age which, much like people, happen at different times. The girls, or ‘dams’, reach puberty at about one year, while the boys, ‘sires’,  take three years! Get it together, boys.

On that note, llamas are kinda weird for an animal their size 😶. For one thing, girls don’t go into heat! They kinda just… wander around, deciding when to sex all on their own.

(Could you imagine if humans had that kind of self control?)

Second, they do the do laying down, which is kind of impractical if you think about it. But hey, whatever works, right?

They also, uh, ‘do it’, for twenty to forty-five minutes!

(The face that lasts longer than you , deal,with it)

And after, if the dam gets pregnant, it takes eleven and a half years before a baby llama is born!

(Fun Fact: a baby llama is called a cria, which is Spanish for baby 👶)

And during that Almost Year, if a male tries to rape her she spits at him and then attacks. Pretty badass if you ask me.

Yeah, and I’m sure this is just scratching the surface of a llamas sex life, so if any of you know something I don’t, please feel free to tell me in great detail!
