Fig. 3. Drawing of a Canangucho fruiting palm (Mauritia flexuosa) done by Jairo Moreno. According to indigenous people, drawings may include large amounts of information. For instance, in this case it indicates a particular place/forest type. This palm is generally found in patches locally known as Cananguchales, which are backswamps with poorly drained soils, and time of the year, i.e., June–July, canangucho fruiting season. Also, information on seed dispersal is provided: fruits consumed by "Danta de pintura negra," the Black Painted Tapir (Tapirus terrestris), as well as mythological associations. The cananguchales are sacred sites where animals meet on a particular time of the year.
