Did you know: The term Lama (single L) is used to refer to all four South American members of the camelid family, and the word Llama (double LL) is used to refer to the particular species. Originally, they were in North America (during the Pleistocene period), but migrated to South America over the isthmus of Panama. They then died out in North America. In the highlands of Peru, some 3,000 to 4,000 years ago, llamas were domesticated, placing them among the oldest domestic animals in the world.
There will be a quiz next Thursday. Thanks for the llama!
