Related to the llama, guanacos run free in the Pampas. They have a herd mentality – spooking when near horses and running, for example. We had one run next to our car at about 35mph, he actually outran the car and then ran in front of us.

The baby guanaco is really a pet, only 3 months old, at the La Leona ranch. Somehow he lost his mother, and was adopted by the ranch owner. He was very sweet and comfortable not only around me, but the dogs and chickens at the ranch. And he won the longest legs contest, hooves down.
