The llama has a four-chambered stomach, which allows it to chew the cud twice to gain all the nutrition it can from its food. The unique shape of the llama’s red blood cells allows it to dwell in very high altitudes. Some believe the camel to have evolved from the llama; however, these two animals are probably from the same animal kind created on Day 6 of Creation Week.
