The Llama is a herdable animal in Age of Empires II: The Forgotten and Age of Empires III.

Age of Empires II Edit

In Age of Empires II, the Llama provides 100 food.

It can be found in American maps and random maps with jungle, including Acropolis, Cenotes, Yucatán, and many others. The Incas start the game with one Llama due to their civilization bonus.

Age of Empires III Edit

Herd animal. Fattens over time. Fattens faster if tasked on a Livestock Pen, Farm, or Village.
In-game description

In Age of Empires III, Llamas can be found in the wild in the maps Andes, Pampas, and Araucania, and in some iterations of Araucania, each player starts with six of them. Alternatively, Portuguese and Spanish players can send the Llama Ranching Home City Card, which will enable them to train Llamas from the Livestock Pen in a similar manner to the Sheep and the Cow for other civilizations. A Llama costs 70 food to create, and when fully fattened, grants 400, but they fatten faster than Cows, making them an all around better livestock animal.

History Edit

Scientific Name: Lama glama
Approx. Size: 3-4 ft. at the shoulder, 300 lb.
Diet: Grasses, vegetation

Llamas resemble shaggy camels without humps. They live in herds and are sometimes added to herds of sheep, goats, and even geese to protect these animals from predators. Humans use them as beasts of burden or sources of meat, milk, and wool. When aggravated or making displays of dominance or displeasure, llamas can spit up greenish stomach acid. They have thick, wooly coats, commonly brown, black and white or piebald. Llamas include four species of related animals - two (the llama and the alpaca) are domestic, and two (the guanaco and the vicuna) are wild.

Trivia Edit

  • While not appearing as a herdable unit, the Llama Caravan is the Atlantean caravan unit in Age of Mythology.
