Although the Incas brought llamas and alpacas to Machu Picchu, and tourists enjoy taking selfies with llamas today, neither species is native to this region of Peru. Llamas and alpacas prefer elevations of 13,000 feet (4,000 m) or higher. The llamas you see today at Machu Picchu—and even the grass they eat!—were brought in specifically for tourism purposes.
