The Andean condor is the largest flying land bird in the Western hemisphere. Its wingspan reaches over 10 feet. The range of the Andean condor is along the Andes mountain chain from Venezuela to the Strait of Magellan.
The vicuna, prey of the condor, is a relative of the llama that produces small amounts (about a pound per year) of very fine wool. The species is considered endangered.
