View-Master 3D Pictures
You can see the ViewMaster pictures in 3-D if you have a viewer or glasses as shown on page 26.
If you don’t have a viewer to see the 3-D stereoviews, they are also reproduced in anaglyph format
so that they can be seen by using a set of red/blue anaglyph glasses.
If you don’t have any of these glasses lying around,
you can get a set of free anaylph glasses
by sending a stamped self-addressed envelope to this 3-D supply company.
There are also anaglyph glasses in some issues of magazines
that you might have lying around such as
the August 1998 National Geographic or the winter issue of Sports Illustrated.
This View-Master reel is from a set titled
Wild Animals of the World.
It is reel number B 6141 and the caption reads Llama, South America.
Notice how wild they look in the enlarged stereo version below.
The south American camel has
been domesticated by man for more
than 2,000 years.
It feeds and clothes him and is used
as a beast of burden.
The sure-footed llama can pack 200
pounds of ore down steep mountain
trails. When in a bad mood, it can be
stubborn. If overloaded, it sits down,
spits at the driver, and refuses to move.
Two hundred pounds would also be too much weight for a llama to carry.
Most people would not put more on than a quarter of the animal’s weight,
so if a llama weighed 400 pounds we would not have it carry more than 100 pounds.
This View-Master reel is number 914, titled
Wild Animals of South America in Captivity U.S.A.
It shows a guanco, an alpaca and some llamas.
(Do you think that this photo was taken at the same time as the one at the top of the page?)
This View-Master reel is titled
It is reel number B 6173 and is the third reel in a set of three.
It shows a young girl feeding a baby guanco.
Baby guanaco examines tidbit the tot is offering.
|A YOUNG GUANCO|
Even though it doesn’t have a hump, this guanaco from the Andes Mountains of South America is a member of the camel family. All four camel relatives in the New World are humpless. Aside from the wild guanaco, there are his three tame cousins: the llama, used as a pack animal; and the alpaca and vicuna, with long, soft wool, which is valued for weaving into fine, warm cloth.
It seems unfair to the American camels that the bactrian camel Of Asia got two humps while they got none; and of course, the famous African and Arabian ship of the desert, the dromedary camel, has one. Never insult a camel, in the New World or the Old, because one thing they have in common: when angered, they spit!
|Llamas on the Altiplano|
The dignified llama, whose expression and bearing often remind one of an outraged spinster, is the all-purpose animal of Bolivia. It gives the Indians milk, meat, leather, and wool, and serves as a beast of burden as well. It is treated well, and its owners even give birthday parties for its newborn.
While the burro, which was introduced by the Spanish, has taken over much of the hauling, and the oxen is used to some extent, the llama is still the favorite. It has been a beast of burden for centuries, and its habitat largely determined the boundary of the Inca empire. strong and sure-footed, it is at home on the steep paths of the cordillera. The Altiplano swarms with countless herds of llamas and vicuñas, perhaps more than any other Andean nation, and these two marvelous beasts exist only in the Andes.
In this scene a llama caravan traverses the Altiplano which is a broad wind-swept plain 12,000 feet above sea level. It covers about 50,000 square miles and stretches some 500 miles south from Lake Titicaca to Argentina. It is broken by deep, wooded gorges, by rises, and by salt marshes. In its center is Lake Poopó which is connected by river with lake Titicaca.

|LLAMAS AT THE CHILDREN’S ZOO|
A child’s dream comes true in the Children’s Zoo, which is separate from the regular zoo. It is arranged so that children may get close enough to the animals to feed and pet them. Here a pair of llamas are getting a handout from some of their young admirers. Just in front of the llamas is a baby burro, also getting a snack.
