It is always the question— do alpacas spit? Well here is proof, yes they do! This is our beloved stud male, Sugar Ray, often more dog like than alpaca like. He enjoys car rides and a good scratch behind the ear. He has been with us for 11 years, having been born the same year as our son.
Sugar Ray, however, is not a good listener. He especially doesn’t like to take no for an answer from the ladies. When all the girls have been bred and are pregnant they repel the advances of a male by spitting and running. On this day, an altercation occurred at the fence line and Sugar Ray simply would not back off. Thus, a head full of green spit. Yes, I do occasionally get spit on but no, not like this!
