ELOTEROS | Mexican Wildlife
By Micah Moen
Every beast in the animal kingdom is known to be selfish in order to ensure their own survival. However, there is one species who’s sole purpose is to provide sustenance for others. They are known as ‘Eloteros’. Commonly found roaming the neighborhoods of Northern America the Elotero is an absolutely beautiful creature. And much like the Water Buffalos of South East Asia they push around tools with their brute strength. This magnificant creature is known as the ‘giver of life’ for many. And similar to the Indian Peacock The Elotero uses a mating call to make it’s presence known. Elotes! This unique sound can be heard up to a mile away. And upon hearing it, like an Arabian Horse, the Homosapiens will perk their ears up in order to locate the food source. Once the Elotero is located, like animals at a water hole the Homosapiens wait patiently for their turn. The Elotero prepares the meal with such grace and care that is not seen anywhere else in the animal kingdom. It is as though, the preparation of corn has a deeper meaning to the Elotero breed. $2 please. It appears that the two are now engaging in an interaction called ‘mutualism’. In this case, a form of paper is traded for food. Despite the joy, the Eloteros bring to most Homosapiens They do have one predator, ‘The Permit sapien’. Hi, yes is this Code Enforcement? Yea, there’s a man selling food on my street and I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t have a permit! It is still unknown why the Permit sapien engages in these activities, but scientists believe like the pests of the animal kingdom they are simply a waste of space. But it seems as though the Homosapiens have had enough. And like a Lion pride, they are attacking the Permit sapien as a collective.
