The vicuña, is an animal closely related to the llama, alpaca and camel. The vicuña is currently living
in the high plateaus of the Andes of Perú, Bolivia, Argentina and Chile, but the first vicuña was found
in Inda during the discovery of America. The Vicuña was never domesticated and is pursued by hunters
because of their skin and wool.


A common skipper butterfly species was found to be composed of ten species, each with a distinctive
life history. In a place such as Sri Lanka, writes Jörn Köhler of the Department of Zoology at the Hessisches
Landesmuseum in Darmstadt, Germany, genetic distinctions could double the number of known amphibian species.
“The recognition of new species may exacerbate an organism’s threat status, because it can result in subdivision
of a once widespread species into numerous species, each with a smaller and, hence, a more precarious distribution.”
