Camelids: new players in the international animal production context is the title of the article published on SpringerLink which aims to explain the importance of Camelids in the future of livestock. The authors (Mousa Zarrin, José L. Riveros, Amir Ahmadpour, André M. de Almeida, Gaukhar Konuspayeva, Einar Vargas-Bello-Pérez, Bernard Faye and Lorenzo E. Hernández-Castellano) focused their research on identifying the most relevant traits of the Camelid family, which include the Bactrian camel, the dromedary camel, the llama, the alpaca, the guanaco, and the vicuña (Vicugna vicugna), highlighting how this “unconventional” family may become more and more relevant source of production and protein for humans, especially for tropical and subtropical regions.
