Gigantic 2000-Year-Old Cat Discovered In Peru’s Heritage Site

GIGANTIC 2000-YEAR-OLD CAT DISCOVERED – Scientists have recently found an ancient geoglyph of a large cat in the Nazca desert in Peru.

Geoglyphs are similar to hieroglyphs, but instead, they’re etched on the ground, rather than on the walls. Furthermore, these designs and figures are often large, encompassing a wide area on the ground.

According to an article from the BBC, one of these geoglyphs in Nazca featured a relaxing cat. The geoglyph was found etched on a side of a mountain and was dated at about 2,000-years-old.

Scientists theorize that the cat, along with other Nazca figures was made by creating depressions in the desert floor. With this, the color of the Earth becomes exposed.

However, despite previous explorations, this particular cat geoglyph was left unnoticed until recently. As per the article, the 2000-year-old cat geoglyph was discovered due to a recently drawn up path leading to an observation platform.

In a public address, Peru’s Culture Ministry stated:

“The figure was scarcely visible and was about to disappear because it’s situated on quite a steep slope that’s prone to the effects of natural erosion

Along with this, they noted that the cat geoglyph was over 120 feet long (37m). Moreover, it underwent cleaning and was conserved over the past week.

Johny Isla, Peru’s head archaeologist for the Nazca lines stated that the cat geoglyph pre-dates the Nazca culture. This meant that the figure could potentially date back to 200 to 700 AD. Additionally, he said the cat was actually from the late Paracas or around 500 BC to 200 AD.
