Puberty. The precise age at onset of puberty in female llamas and alpacas remains undetermined. Age at first ovulation depends on age at first mating as camelids are induced ovulators.

6 Current knowledge suggests that puberty is greatly influenced by nutritional status and environmental conditions. In their natural habitat, the puna, age at puberty is reflected by forage availability and time. ABA, M.
