These people are very poor and they do not own the land, they rent the land to plant tabaco, corn, soybean, bean and they raise some milk cows, oxes, pigs, horses. When pigs get wild and the ploughmen say here "porco alçado" or stray pig. The stray pigs are dangerous as they breed with the European boars, also found in the area as "alçados". The wild boars came by themselves from Argentina and Uruguay and now they infest some areas of the South. These boars and the stray pigs interbreed and the resulting animal is a dangerous big beast known here as javaporco (pig/boar). They get to a huge size and they are really dangerous specially when they have youngs.
I say used because today we saw just some individuals and very rare groups of clone (plants resulting from splitting heads). We saw they have being eaten by a native rodent, a "cotia" .https://www.google.com.br/search?q=cotia&client=firefox-b&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi8juLGh4rRAhWGUZAKHYNDAO4QsAQIOA&biw=1440&bih=766
They eat all leaves first (All in a Dyckia is edible, specially juicy is its heart!) then they attack the main part, the heart, they eat down to the roots. All that is left to be seen are roots and a circle feces around where the delicata used to be.
This wall is made of a very loose magmatic rock. It is well fragmented and parts of it fall from the main rock constantly. This makes any attemp to climb it or being close to it a very dangerous and risky attitude. Also this explains the absence of trees in there. To the left the trees are dominating and the few delicatas were shadowed, bigger and now vanished from that area due to the growing trees and the cotia assaults.
B - This is a bean crop. Te poor peasant used a plough and a ox to move the rocks and there they sow beans. The terrain is a migger low fertile one. It is a subsistence labor.
Above we see Tomba Bodes Hill. It stays to the left in nature.
Bellow here and to the right in nature is the delicata holy site in nature, the type form came from this place bellow (2).
4 - The Pardo River passes here and it is still very narrow for it begins nearby.
