Apparently, llama poo is excellent fertiliser . . . So, we are likely to grow the biggest vegetables in the village, as we have something of an excess available to us. True to form, Val is the poo collector, and as you can see, she loves the work!
Now all we need is to put a big bucket outside the house, with a sign inviting villagers to help themselves . . . . .
Interestingly (or at least I think it’s interesting, so what does that say about me?) llamas are very social about their toilet habits. They establish one or two areas in the field where they will all go to poo and wee. Often the females go off the toilet together – showing many similarities with humans. Even the baby has adopted this social convention of using the communal latrine. What a sophisticated breed of animals they are!
