When leaving it, the princess left it near an anthill, it was then that the little ants fed it with drops of honey that they obtained from a honeycomb. Shortly after feeding, the ants left the baby near a maguey tree. By having it between their stalks, the maguey sheltered and fed him with the mead that he carried inside. Some time later, the maguey was placed in a box and placed over the waters of the Atongo River, until an elderly couple who lived in Tepoztlán found him and raised him as if he were their son.
Little Tepoztécatl grew up to become a strong and skilled warrior. One day an evil serpent called Mazacóatl appeared in Xochicalco threatening the inhabitants of that town. Tepoztécatl's adoptive father was chosen to destroy that frightening creature, but the man was very old and tired, so Tepoztécatl decided to take his place and fight the snake. For this, the young man took many pieces of obsidian and when he was fighting against the creature he cut its entrails with the crystals, thus ending its life.
When he returned to his town Tepoztécatl became their hero, everyone celebrated his victory and named him Lord of Tepoztlán and priest of the God Ometochtli. Years later, Tepoztécatl disappeared and went to live forever in the pyramid that is located at the top of the Tepozteco hill.
