The Guanaco is a member of a camel family. Its closest relatives are lamas, camels and alpacas. Guanacos are native to South America and inhabit scrublands, savannas, forests and rocky areas, usually at high altitude (up to 13 000 feet). Since the guanaco lives in windy area, it has thick eyelashes that protect eyes from dust and dirt. Two padded feet allow easy movement across the gravel in the rocky environment.
