Vicuñas are plentiful in Peru. Especially at Pampa Galeras in Ayacucho. Don't know where you heard of Chile having vicuñas and not Peru.

My country, Perú, was menaced by the terrorists of "shining path" during 15 years!!! It is inexact to call "guerrilla" to such a group of murders.

With respect of llamas, alpacas, vicuñas and guanacos, they are well known as south american camelids and are very different species. Peru has the greater population of alpacas with more than 3'500,000 individuals. Chile buy peruvian alpacas in the south of Peru and made very good deal selling them to Australia, Italy and USA where they are trying to grow this species up to industrialize it.
