Mystery Jaw Bone

My friend Sonia just got back from Quito in Ecuador. She found this jawbone on the Cotopaxi volcano. I tried to figure out what it was. It wasn't a horse jaw. It didn't belong to a donkey. Llamas have a canine tooth and it wasn't a llama. I next thought that it might be a vicuna. No luck. I finally identified it. It is the jaw bone of an alpaca.
