Llamas are related to camels and can be found in the mountainous regions of South America. These animals have been domesticated as beasts of burden and were once maintained in great numbers by the people of the Andes for use in transportation. Today, the Llama has been largely replaced by the horse, but is still widely used in remote and barren areas. Range: Chile, Peru and Bolivia......Hattiesburg Zoo
