Here we have chosen to highlight just ten of these ancient enigmas, from lost labyrinths to enormous geoglyphs, stone masonry with exceptional precision, mysterious figurines, and giant spheres. This chapter examines the fascination for exotic and wondrous animals in Classical antiquity. It explains that the location of these wondrous animals was determined largely by ancient concepts of climatic conditions in different regions of the earth and knowledge about them came from diverse sources such as ancient travelogues, scientific treatises, and encyclopedic works.
