Llama
(Lama glama)
As An Animal Of The Americas
Found In The Wildlife Safari

Llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era. Llamas appear to have originated from the central plains of North America about 40 million years ago. They migrated to South America about three million years ago. By the end of the last ice age (10,000-12,000 years ago), camelids were extinct in North America. [from wikipedia]
