The Llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since pre-Hispanic times. They are very social animals and live with other llamas as a herd. The wool produced by a llama is very soft and lanolin-free. Llamas are intelligent and can learn simple tasks after a few repetitions. They tend to live in very dry climates and get most of the moisture from their food.
Llamas browse on low shrubs, lichens, and mountain vegetation and grasses.
