These camelid species are native to South America. These animals are known for their high thirst tolerance and ability to subsist on a wide variety of foods, enabling them to survive on the bleak Andean plateaus and mountains.
Moreover, they are also very moody animals and can be aggressive in some instances but are usually shy. Their populations are strong and stable and are of no particular concern from a conservational point of view.
Llamas are closely related to the wild vicuña and its domesticated cousin, the alpaca.
