Anatomy: Llamas are very strong mammals that have two-toed feet with toenails on the top and with pads on the bottom. They do not have hooves. Llamas are 3 to 4 feet (0.9 to 1.2 m) tall at the shoulder. Young llamas are called crias.
Diet: Llamas are herbivores (plant-eaters). They eat mostly grasses, herbs, and other plant material. Llamas are ruminants; they have a three-part stomach. They partially chew their food; later, the food is regurgitated as a cud, which the llama then chews thoroughly.
Classification:Class Mammalia (mammals), Order Artiodactyla, Suborder Tylopoda, Family Camelidae, Genus Lama, Species L. glama.
