Guanaco in the Torres del Paine Nov 08, 2016
The guanaco is one of four camelids native to South America and the third that we had seen on this trip (having encountered domesticated alpaca at the Emiliana Vineyards in the Casablanca Valley and wild vicuña in the Atacama Desert). They live in herds like this with females, their young, and a single dominant male.

Our guide pointed out that wherever you see a herd there will be one on the hill above, standing sentinel to watch for puma. Despite this you will see many guanaco skeletons in the park, picked clean by the condors after the puma has eaten his fill. We would all have loved to have seen a puma, naturally, and the guide did his best to spot one, but they proved elusive. Still, the guanaco shots made up for that to a large extent.
