Amazon Petroglyphs

, ,

Colossal has photos of the recently discovered Amazonian petroglyphs: Tens of thousands of paintings of animals and humans, made up to 12,600 years ago, found on an eight-mile rock surface along the Guayabero River in the Colombian Amazon.

The paintings include drawings of large mammals, birds, fish, lizards, handprints, and masked figures of dancing humans. The ancient paintings also record interactions between humans and extinct species of giant Ice Age mammals like mastodons.
