History


Description

Toca da Boa Vista is the longest cave on the southern hemisphere, and the longest cave of Brazil. However, most famous is this cave for an enormous amount of prehistoric bones, which were found in the cave. 20,000 years ago an enormous river transported dead animals into the cae, which formed deposits of bones. More than 50,000 bones have be excavated until now, among them the bones of huge mammals which are now extinct. An example is a six metre long giant Faultier.
