Sprawling 8-mile-long ‘canvas’ of ice age beasts discovered hidden in Amazon rainforest

An 8-mile-long “canvas” filled with ice age drawings of mastodons, giant sloths and other extinct beasts has been discovered in the Amazon rainforest. 

The gorgeous art, drawn with ochre — a red pigment frequently used as paint in the ancient world — spans nearly 8 miles (13 kilometers) of rock on the hills above three rock shelters in the Colombian Amazon, a new study finds.
