The term llama is used to colloquially refer to four different, similar species, including the llama, vicuna, guanaco, and alpaca. Llamas were domesticated many centuries ago, and have been used and bred as pack animals. However, they’re also an excellent source of fiber for clothing, and can even be used as guard animals for farms and livestock!

Llamas do not have an official conservation status because they are a domesticated species. There are roughly 3 million llamas worldwide, although most live in Bolivia. In addition to being pack animals, they provide meat and wool. Their excrement is used for fuel, and their hides provide sources of leather.
