Aztec fabulous creature

The amazing Red Ant that supplied the fuel power QUETZALCOATL needed to keep the human race going.

QUETZALCOATL came across him humping a kernel of maize bigger than himself with no trouble. After a little persuasion (involving intimidation) the ant was forced to reveal his secret store. Which was inside a grain mountain inside a mountain and contained no end of nutritious goodies and seeds.

This was the beginning of breakfast for the undernourished human race. We hope this makes you feel wiser when you tuck into your Cornflakes in the morning.
