Pinturas Rupuestres

Rock paintings in San Jose del Guaviare Department, Colombia. Some portions are believed to be ten thousand years old. There is an image (not here) that pretty clearly shows a giant sloth. The paint is mineral based so difficult to date. The painting on these rock cliffs continued for thousands of years. It is believed the image at the center of this photo depicts a Spanish war dog threatening a group of natives. The Indians made thorn traps to damage the feet of the dogs but the Spaniards fashioned iron "booties" to protect them. Many Indians were killed by these dogs typically mastiffs
