The llama or Lama glama is a domesticated South American camelid, widely used as a meat and pack animal by Andean cultures since the Pre-Columbian era.

The height of a full-grown, full-size llama or Lama glama is 5.6 to 5.9 ft. tall at the top of the head, and can weigh between 290 and 440 lbs. At birth, a baby llama, called a cria can weigh between 20 and 31 lbs. Llamas or Lama glama typically live for 15 to 25 years.

They are very social animals and live with other llamas or Lama glama as a herd. The wool produced by a Lama glama is very soft and lanolin-free. Llamas are intelligent and can learn simple tasks after a few repetitions. When using a pack, they can carry about 25 to 30 percent of their body weight for 5 to 8 miles.

Lama glama upper jaw, is a compressed, sharp, pointed laniariform incisor near the hinder 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 or Lama glamas isolated canine-like premolar that follows in the camels is not present. The teeth of the molar series, 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.

The llama or Lama glama skull generally resembles that of Camelus, the larger brain-cavity and orbits and less-developed cranial ridges being due to its smaller size. The nasal bones are shorter and broader, and are joined by the premaxilla.
