From what I've read they spit too when disturbed, not so often as lhamas.

I absolutely dream of having these, but know I never will. (I dream about a lot of things!)

They must be fun!

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the difference between a llama and an alpaca?

There are 4 camel relatives in the Andes: Alpaca, guanaco, llama, vicuña.

I would love to have a couple of vicuna. A guanaco, not so much... or really even a llama. We have horses, I'm short, and enjoy having at least a few around shorter than me.

It's my understanding llama and alpaca are domestic animals, bred originally down through guanaco and vicuna. From memory that is, which at times gets pretty shady.

All four species are found in the wild. Llama and alpaca have been domesticated, for pack animals and wool. Guanaco have an extremely specialized diet, including small cactus. Their lower incisors have evolved into a scoop to dig up globular cacti. I don't know what the difficulty is in keeping vicuña, but they don't live long in captivity.
