Nobody knows for sure why the south of Brazil has so many. Most are in the states of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, but Minas Gerais, another southern state, boasts some remarkable examples, including a 340m-long paleoburrow and a collection of six 40m-long tunnels that lead to 10m-wide by 4m-high chambers. In June this year, this site – the largest paleoburrow in the state – was brought under official protection to safeguard it from human activity.

A handful of paleoburrows can be found across South America, although none have been recorded in North America. "It's something that has no logical explanation because the megafauna roamed across the continent. You should have tunnels in other places," said Frank.
