The llama is a domesticated South American pack animal, camelid (member of camels), widely indebted to the Andean/Inca cultures. This animal is valued for its wool, agility in terms of transportation, meat, companionship and guarding of other animals.
It was bred throughout the Inca Empire by the indigenous people, thousands of years ago, to carry supplies and goods. As a result, it assumed the status of ‘a beast of burden’. Compared to other domesticated animals, llamas have unique characteristics. They are friendly with children, kind, curious, intelligent, sociable, trainable and durable. Dead or alive, llamas have demonstrated the best ever value proposition by an animal to humankind
