A.O.T.D. (Animal of the Day) Llama

Llamas are relatives of camels living in South America, primarily Peru. They serve such multiple purposes to man. They are very reliable pack animals, leather is made from their hides, the coats are used to make rope, rugs, and fabrics. Llama meat is a popular item and finally their excrement is dried and used for fuel.
