The Grotte Cussac is the youngest of several new discovered prehistoric caves. In this cave more than 100 engravings were discovered until now, complete or partial figures of mammoths, rhinoceros, cervids, bisons, and horses. Several rare or unique engravings give the discovery an additional importance: birds, female silhuettes, sexual representations, and strange figures with open mouths and long muzzles, probably imaginary animals or shamans.
Beneath the engravings, the cave also contains archaeological remains, including at least one complete skeleton.
