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. Llama are intelligent and can learn simple tasks after a few repetitions. They tend to live in very dry climates and get most of their needed water from the moisture in their food.
The wool produced by a llama is very soft and lanolin-free.
