Today the llama is naturally found in the Andes Mountains region of South America, where it was kept as a pack animal by the ancient Inca people. Llamas are mostly used for their thick, warm wool, and for transporting heavy loads up the steep Andes Mountains. Llamas are very social animals and enjoy being with other llamas in a herd. Llamas are also believed to be particularly intelligent, picking up commonly taught tasks with only a few repetitions. The llama is an herbivore and gets most of its nutrition from grass, leaves and young shoots. There are currently over 158,000 llamas in the United States and Canada, most of which are in captivity.
