Scientists have identified two new geoglpyhs of a human head and an animal in Nazca, Peru.

Situated close to the Nazca Lines the new geoglyphs are thought to have been missed previously due to their small sizes of between three and four metres in length. The team had previously uncovered almost one hundred glyphs carved in to the desert in 2006.

"The new geoglyphs depict a human head and an animal figure that the researchers have yet to identify, state news agency Andina reported."

Any chance you can add the second geoglyph picture again?? I'm curious to see what it looks like. Maybe we can all discuss what we think it is It is irelavant. I found that second picture on one forum where guy claim that he got that picture from one japan site. I upload picture and check that site later and didnt find that pic.

It -could- be fake. Although, it is pretty scary nonetheless.

The pic of the alleged face could be just about anything. From the crappy condition and resolution of the pic, it could very well be shadows from bushes. If you really want to see something, just stare at random squiggles for a while... you'll start seeing stuff.

Well, they're nazca lines. Not photograph portraits. Why would you think they are fake? Why would someone fake Nazca Lines, which are already established to exist? I suppose it gets attention, but we're not dealing with Chupacabra footage here.

I don't see why it couldn't be real. After all, to achieve the Nazca lines, the indigenous people must have had practice runs before tackling a much larger project. Same idea in Egypt. We do see the earlier pyramids as test runs before creating the last ancient wonder of the world.

I don't see why it couldn't be real. Me too. Im more sure that is real then that is not real.

Technically, in a literal sense, the Great Pyramids are the first ancient wonder of the world. I mean they are the last to survive, but all 7 existed at one time or another.
