yup.. 4 fangs, I think. Two sets of two. Normally theyre cut off at the gum line (or ground down) to the length of other teeth) so they cant attack other males (Or females, either, technically, but you have to keep the males and females separate since the females don't ovulate, they can pretty much breed any time. If theyre on a controlled breeding schedule, you dont want the males interrupting that so you separate them). teeechnically, Im pretty sure females get fangs, too. Theyre not cut off, though, and theyre way smaller than male fangs.

Two sets on the top, one set on the bottom. http://www.vivo.colostate.edu/hbooks/pathphys/digestion/pregastric/llamapage.html

Llamas also kick. The pug got rolled out of the field by a llama kick once because the idiot decided to challenge Flint. He's stayed away from him since though. And Flint knew the pug was mostly just stupid and kicked him gently at least. Otherwise, the pug would have been really hurt.

Plus, they spit with such force that it is likely to bruise you if you're on the receiving end of it.

Another piece of llama trivia...They always poop in the same place. So they make big piles of round black pellets, which is kind of funny to watch people react to.
