Llamas going about their daily business near Pacchanta, Peru. They are integrated into the landscape and paramount to rural life in the Andes. These cameloids serve as pack and meat animals as well as providing wool for textiles, blankets and clothing. They first appeared in the North America plains 40 million years ago, and subsequently migrated to Asia and South America roughly 3 million years ago. They are herbivores, highly social and particularly intelligent. Truly remarkable animals!
