Meet Cocoa the Llama

Hello, my name is Cocoa and I am one of A Zoo For You’s llamas. I have an amazing life mission making people happy everywhere I go! I have a long slender neck, beautiful brown fur, and the most adorable face. Sometimes people confuse me with the alpaca but I am bigger than an alpaca, have larger ears than an alpaca and am typically raised to guard livestock and carry heavy loads long distances. I feel so lucky to be able to go to so many events in the greater St. Louis area, Columbia, and Illinois where I love to take selfies, photo bomb the other animals and even give kisses to the people who come to visit me! I will be all over Missouri and Illinois with A Zoo For You this fall at a wide variety of events!

Cocoa advises the following if animals are wanted at a festival, event or birthday party. Be sure to ask if the animal provider is licensed by the USDA. Federal law requires petting zoo’s with certain animals (bunnies, sheep, goats, cows, llamas and alpacas and other exotic type animals) to be licensed. Find out if the animal provider company has petting zoo or pony ride insurance to limit liability in the event that something happens. Read online reviews to see what other people are saying about the company that you are about to hire. Ask for references and remember that quality and friendliness of animals is more important than the price. Post event be sure to leave online feedback to help other people hire the right company.

A Zoo For You is fully licensed, insured and BBB accredited.

Thank you very much,
Cocoa (A Zoo For You)
