The llama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since pre-Hispanic times.
A male llama is called as a sire, the female is referred to as a dam, and cria is the name given to a baby llama. The Inca Indians of South America considered them as their lifeline as llamas were the only means of livelihood for them. The fibers of llamas are fireproof.
