Do alpacas spit?

Spitting is a characteristic alpaca behaviour. Animals spit at each other if they are competing for space or food. The most notable instance of spitting is when a pregnant female spits at a macho.

Not all alpacas spit, but all are capable of doing so. Occasionally the projectile contains only air and a little saliva but alpacas commonly bring up acidic stomach contents (generally a green grassy mix) and project it onto their chosen target. Spitting is mostly reserved for other alpacas, but an alpaca will occasionally spit at humans that, for example, take away food.
