Elephants and avocados seems like a good match.
Avocados evolved to be spread by megafauna and aren't aware that all the megafauna in the Americas died a long time ago.
Elephants, though, seem like the perfect replacement.
It's good for the avocado and good for the elephants. Maybe everyone else not so much.

Hm, invasive species or threatened native megafauna. Such a difficult choice.

saturn badger: Guacamole, subby, not paste. Lovely fresh guacamole.


If you're just smashing avocados and calling it guacamole, anyone you feed it to has the right to slap you.

Can't disagree:

Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. Although most of the calories in an avocado come from fat, don't shy away!

Perhaps if we teach the Elephants to mine bitcoins, they can purchase the avocados directly from the farm?

/I kid. But a local growing industry in the path of one of many local wildlife doesn't have a clear answer. I hope something at least resembling a fair compromise is in the near future, but I certainly won't hold my breath.

Once the elephants get a taste for avocado there won't be any left to sell.

Wholesale conversion of undeveloped wildland to cash-crop agriculture has gone so well in South America.

No, that's the beautiful part. In the winter the bitcoins simply freeze to death.
