Are you writing a fantasy novel? Do you find yourself tired of writing the same old animals? Are you fed up with horses, who do nothing but carry people, pull carts and demand attention? Do you ever wonder if there’s an animal out there that can do more, without being so elitist?
Well there is! Introducing
Llama are large animals perfectly suited for all of your questing needs!* Llamas have uses in the industries of transportation, farming, clothing, fire-building, tanning and food production.
1. Does your quest take you to the highest reaches of the Forbidden Mountains? Llamas can travel at high altitudes without getting winded, higher altitudes than lowland animals like horses.
2. Crossing the barren plains? Llamas don’t need to stop for water when traveling. It’s enough for them to drink at the end of the day. Unless, of course, there is no water, in which case they can get moisture from green plants like shrubs and lichen.
3. Rocky terrain? A llama can pick their way over rocky terrain more easily than horses.
4. Heavy equipment? Llamas can carry 25-30% of their body weight (130 lbs).
5. No firewood? Llama dung can be burned in fires. They even conveniently poop in the same place every day.
6. Change of wardrobe? Llama hair can be spun and woven. Their outer hair is used for ropes and rugs and their undercoat can be used for clothes.
7. Need some personality? Llama’s let you know when it’s time to take a break, or you’re asking them to carry too much. And like their cousin the camel, the llama spits. But only with each other (usually).
8. Are a you a shepherd who needs someone to look after your flock while you go questing? Llamas can be used as guard animals. (This is a relatively new discovery.) They will adopt the sheep as their own heard and scare off coyotes and other predators by spitting, stomping and running towards them aggressively.
9. Need a long term questing companion? Llamas live 20-25 years.
10. Want more llamas now? Female llamas don’t go into heat; they can breed anytime. Just stick to llamas in a pen, put on some Barry White and in little less than a year you’ll have a baby llama!
Stop wasting time and get your own llama, today!
