Israel's New Secret Weapon: The Llama

The Israeli military has been experimenting with using llamas as special forces vehicles to assist in carrying out reconnaissance missions in Syria and Lebanon. According the World Tribune article, the Israeli army had attempted to use donkeys to carry heavy equipment during covert operations since mechanical vehicles are much nosier but discovered the llama was much better suited in terms of load capacity and food consumption(llamas eat only once a day).

This kind of puts a whole new spin the children's book, "Is Your Mama a Llama?"
