Richard Cox

Outside of his professional life as a sports scientist, teaching at universities in both the US and UK, Richard has a life long passion for animals (from rabbits and cavies in childhood, through cats, poultry, waterfowl and goats to Llamas in more recent years). In particular, he has a strong interest in stock breeding, grassland management and all aspects of animal husbandry. 

He has authored over a dozen books on sport science and sport(including the Encylopaedia of British Sport ) and  recently 3 books on llamas (click here for details). As part of this process he has compiled various databases on llama information, the one of published literature containing over 3,500 entries, the one of websites and Facebook pages over 1000 and the one of visual images over 5,000 as of 1.1.2023 (see here). 

His recent articles on llama related matters include:

Bright as a Button or Daft as a Brush? Is llama intelligence all its cracked up to be. An Exploratory Analysis (Forthcoming 2023)


Fred Hartman: Caveat Emptor? (Forthcoming 2023)
