Guancos are a wild relative of the llama. They range from northern Peru to the very southern tip of Chile. They can go up to the elevation of 1,200 ft. Now that guancos are protected there are over one million. Most guancos live in the Torresdel Plain National Park in Chile. The only natural predator of the guanco is the puma. The puma kills 10% of all guancos. There is only 150 guancos in North America.
The guanco has reddish-brown back and shoulders and white belly with a black or grey face. They stand 3 1/2 to 4 ft.
