The four forms commonly distinguished by the inhabitants of South America are Recognized as distinct species, though with Difficulties in defining Their distinctive characteristics. The guanacos and Vicuña are wild, the former being endangered, and of a Nearly uniform light-brown color, passing into white below. The Vicuña lives in herds on the Bleak and elevated parts of the mountain range bordering the region of perpetual snow, amidst rocks and precipices, occurring in Various Suitable localities throughout Peru, in the southern part of Ecuador, and as far south as the middle of Bolivia. Its Alpacas are descended from the wild vicuna Ancestors, while domesticated llamas are descended from wild guanacos Ancestors, though a considerable amount of the between the two species hybridization has occurred.Differential characteristics the between llamas and alpacas include the llama's larger size, longer head, and curved ears.

The following characteristics apply ESPECIALLY to llamas. Dentition of adults:-incisors 1 / 3 canines 1 / 1, premolars 2 / 2, molars 3 / 2, total 32. In the upper jaw, a compressed, sharp, pointed incisors laniariform Hinder near the edge of the premaxilla is Followed in the male at least by a moderate-sized, pointed, curved true canine in the anterior part of the maxilla. The isolated canine-like premolars the which follows in the CAMELS is not present. The teeth of the molar series the which are in contact with each other consist of two very small premolars (the first almost rudimentary) and three broad molars, constructed Generally like Those of Camelus. In the lower jaw, the three incisors are long, spatulate, and procumbent the outer ones are the smallest.
