Peru’s Nazca lines were created between 500 BCE and 500 CE by people making depressions in the desert floor and leaving differently colored dirt exposed. Most Nazca lines run straight but some display designs of animals and plants.
One of the latest Nazca lines discovered has been a cat, which is 37m (120ft) long. After discovering this cat, archeologists cleaned and conserved the lines. Who knew that ancient people in Peru loved cats so much they drew one on the side of a hill? That’s what happens when you don’t have the Internet to share cat pictures instead.
