A UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located approximately 249 miles) south of Lima, is the line to be considered to be a single of the archaeology of the great mysteries. The lines have been scratched into the dark ground to reveal the lighter-colored earth underneath, and are best viewed from the air. They show a wide range of animals, plants, imaginary beings and geometric figures.

The scientists were then able to re-arrange some of the pictures. A well-known form of cut-out in the desert, long thought to be a humming bird, in fact, shows a hermit, or so they say. One of the other drawing, which was previously thought to be a guano bird is a pelican, another long-unidentified bird among the pictures.

“The Nazca people, who are the focus of the pictures will not be able to see pelicans, as a food gathering at the shore,” Eda explained. “Our findings show that they are attracted to exotic birds, and not that of the local birds, and this may be a clue as to why they are attracted to them in the first place.”
