Prehistoric Brazil – mysterious and full of riddles

October 14th, 2014 is glad to inform that Brazilian Post issued a set of unusual stamps depicting prehistoric animals. The stamp release consists of four items with the images of different dinosaurs. The issue was unveiled and put into circulation on the 7th of October.

The region João Pessoa is a survey center on the Brazilian Prehistoric era. In the municipality of Sousa, 427 km away from the capital, in the hinterland of the state, lies the famous Dinosaurs Valley, where researchers have found the footprints of Prehistoric animals, dating back 130 million years.

The area is regarded as one of the most important archeological sites in the world – the Peixe River basin displays the highest incidence of dinosaur footprints in the world.

In Ingá, located on the Borborema Plateau, there are cave inscriptions engraved on stone, still an enigma to experts (some attribute the signs to the '1isit of Phoenicians to Brazil).

The local Museum of Natural History holds lots of information on the animals that lived in the region in remote eras, such as the gigantic tropical America iguana, the armadillo, mastodons and others.
