Llamas and alpacas are found in Peru and Bolivia and are used by humans primarily for transportation and fleece production for thousands of years. Llamas and alpacas belong to the camel family, Camelidae, and complete the lamoid species, the other two being vicuña and guanaco, their wild cousins. Llamas and alpacas are often confused for each other but if you look closely, they differ in some ways with the most distinctive characteristics being their size, hair, and face shapes.
