"I never even considered a llama as everyone knows they're indigenous to South America but it turns out that they and their camelid buddies evolved in North America and spread all over the world before becoming extinct here about 10,000 or 12,000 years ago."

It's funny, I was just looking stuff up a few days ago about geology and was surprised when I read something about camels ever being here in North America.



[en.wikipedia.org]

Camelops is an extinct genus of camels that once roamed western North America, where it disappeared at the end of the Pleistocene about 10,000 years ago. Its name is derived from the Greek κάμελος (camel) + ὀψ (face), thus "camel-face."
