// A young male or Bachelor Guanaco, (Lama guanicoe) camelid native to South America keeps watch over his herd mates who are grazing below in the Parque Nacional Talampaya. It is a typical behavior to help protect the herd from predators, such as the cougars, jaguars and foxes.

Guanaco inhabit both the Pampas plains and mountainous regions of #SouthAmerica. They are found in the altiplano of #Peru, #Bolivia and #Chile, and in #Patagonia, with a small population in #Paraguay.
