Greater Black-Winged Loadshedder (Cadredeployomus Eskomii)


Image



Habitat: Well-lit areas throughout South Africa. Favours economically productive environments, and avoids areas populated by the African Ballot Sheep (Democratus Illogicus)

Status: Alien invader species, introduced to South Africa in the early 21st century by semi-skilled government officials in an attempt to combat the spread of the notorious Economic Development fungus released at the end of the 20th century. (see Diet)

Habits: The Loadshedder is largely crepuscular, mostly active in the evenings. It attacks with little or no warning, and can cause widespread damage through its indiscriminate hunting methods. The bird hurls large areas into darkness, and does nothing further, an oddly self-destructive behaviour. Normally found in a symbiotic reletionship with the Japanese Generator Pangolin, and Azanian Tender Vulture.

Diet: The Loadshedder feeds on small crustaceans from the Intimidatoriae family, and during drier months occasionally receives sustenance through parasitic feeding upon the Evergreen Fig (Fiscus spp.)


Breeding: Reproduction occurs at the end of the financial year, with One to Four young emerging shortly after...the young are called Stages.
