The llama is a South American member of the camel family, domesticated from guanacos of the Andean Highlands of Peru some 5,000 years ago. They are one of the oldest domestic animals in the world. They are used mainly as beasts of burden, but the females are also raised for their flesh and milk. Llama flesh tastes similar to mutton. Llamas are also a source of wool, leather, the long hair is used to make rope, and the dried dung is used as fuel.
Some Colorado sheep farmers use llamas to guard their sheep.
