The guanaco is an undomesticated relative of the South American llama, found on the plains and mountains of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, and Peru. The wild population of this mammal is estimated at about 600,000.
Covered with a thick coat of long, soft, reddish-tan hair, a full-grown male stands 35 to 51 inches high at the shoulder and can weigh as much as 200 pounds. Its head is small, with pointed ears; the neck is long, with a graceful curve; and the legs are long and slender. The fur on the belly is pure white. It feeds on grasses and vegetation.
Guanacos are fast-running animals, but become careless due to their innate curiosity and often fall victim to wary predators. The guanaco is also a strong swimmer and takes to water readily."—In-game history
