GUANACO: Closely related to llamas and alpacas, wild guanacos roam Patagonia’s expansive landscapes. The sweet-faced, cinnamon-and-white camelids are most densely located in areas such as Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park, where they don’t have to compete with livestock for grazing land. Guanacos are speedy, able to reach up to 35 miles per hour, and have only one natural predator — the mountain lion.
