    Default perrozompopo

    Nice piece on NPR about the Latin Grammys, with a feature on "Perrozompopo" from Nicaragua

    That group is named after those little lizards that scurry over walls in Nicaragua at night, advertising GEICO with their chirps, right?

    In Carazo the lizards are called chombos. In this part of Nicaragua I believe the word perrozompopo is used for a large type of biting ant.

    The perozompopos I see at the hotel are the fastest moving living things I have ever seen. One second he is on the upper right glass block waiting for a bug. In 1/10,000th of a second he is 2 metres away on a another. I cannot actually see him move.

    Due to relativistic effects, their mass increases with velocity, requiring gargantuan strength, and thus a big appetite. To the insect world, not always recognized for their communication skills (because of the attrition of their storytellers), these terrorist geckos are thought to be Godzillas, invaders from the Orient. .


    I understand the music group is made up of Mejia Godoy family members.
