Archaeologists have discovered a giant cat figure etched into a slope at the Unesco world heritage site in southern Peru. The geoglyph measures 37 metres from head to tail and forms part of the Nazca Line — the hundreds of geoglyphs, including a hummingbird, a monkey and a pelican, carved into a coastal plain about 400km south of Lima.
