Llamas don't 'show' when they are pregnant. To figure it out, the vet will need to do a blood test...

If you have a male llama, you can harness the female and the male, if the female is pregnant she will become agitated around the male and spit him away.

It's not a clear answer, but it's one way of getting some sort of idea.

Llamas are induced ovulators which means they can get pregnant at anytime!

Best way is a transrectal ultrasound by the vet (good luck finding one).

Second best way, is to see if she "spits him off," like she said.
