Normal names incorporate gutless yucca, delicate tip yucca, blue-stem yucca, mammoth yucca and itabo. Its blossom, the izote, is the national bloom of El Salvador. Despite the fact that it can grow up to 9 m (30 ft) in tallness, with a spread to 4.5 m (15 ft), it is typically under 6 m (20 ft) in stature. It might have a thick, single trunk or be multitrunked coming about because of a thickened, swelled, trunk-like lower base like an elephant's foot. The leaves are tie like, gutless and up to 1.2 m (4 ft) long. White blossoms are delivered in the mid year, trailed by dark colored, meaty natural products which are oval and up to 2.5 cm (1 in) long. The species can be developed in an assortment of soils and is dry season tolerant. Youthful plants are incidentally utilized as houseplants.

Turquoise-browed motmot (Eumomota superciliosa)

The turquoise-browed motmot (Eumomota superciliosa) otherwise called Torogoz, is a bright, medium-sized winged animal of the motmot family, Momotidae. It occupies Central America from south-east Mexico (for the most part the Yucatán Peninsula), to Costa Rica, where it is normal and not thought about compromised. It lives in genuinely open natural surroundings, for example, woods edge, exhibition backwoods and scrubland. It is more prominent than different motmots, regularly roosting in the open on wires and fences. From these roosts it checks for prey, for example, creepy crawlies and little reptiles. White eggs (3– 6) are laid in a long passage home in an earth bank or at times in a quarry or crisp water well. Its name begins from the turquoise shade of its forehead. It was first proclaimed as the official national fowl of El Salvador in 1999, where the flying creature is known as Torogoz. The flying creature is roughly 34 cm (13 in) long and weighs around 65 g (2.3 oz). It has a for the most part green-blue body with a rufous back and gut. There is a brilliant blue stripe over the eye and a blue-circumscribed dark fix on the throat. The flight plumes and upperside of the tail are blue. The tips of the tail plumes are molded like rackets and the uncovered quill shafts are longer than in different motmots. Despite the fact that it is frequently said that motmots cull the spikes off their tail to make the racketed shape, this isn't valid; the thorns are feebly appended and tumble off because of scraped area with substrates and with routine dressing. In contrast to most feathered creature species, where just guys express expand characteristics, the turquoise-browed motmot communicates the uncommon racketed tail in both genders. Research shows that the tail has developed to work diversely for the genders. Guys obviously utilize their tail as a sexual sign, as guys with longer tails have more noteworthy blending achievement and regenerative achievement. The turquoise-browed motmot is a notable fledgling in its range and has been picked as the national flying creature of both El Salvador and Nicaragua.
