There is lots of wildlife at Frozen Head, but you won't normally see a llama on the trails! A family took their 3 llamas and an alpaca on their hike. Don't be surprised if you see llamas on some trails in the Smokies though, they are used as pack animals to deliver supplies to the lodge at Mt. Leconte a couple of times a week. Llamas, with their softer hooves and lighter body weight, are much more "environmentally friendly" than the "2000-pound cookie cutters" ---a.k.a. "horses!" By the way, this llama actually does have 4 legs!
