Rocks discovered off the coast of Rio in Brazil could be part of a hidden continent, according to geologists.
The granite samples were found when Brazil's Geology Service (CPRM) dredged the seabed near the Rio Grande Elevation - a long seismic mountainous ridge that runs along the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
And now scientists claim the rocks were likely part of a continent that sunk into the ocean when Africa and South America drifted apart 100 million years ago - dubbing the discovery the 'Brazilian Atlantis'.

That looks like Joe Dirt’s froze turd.

Later a Mormon tried to convince me that the sunken cities were covered with Hebrew writing.
I haven’t heard a word of them since.

I’ll look on the bright side and say it looks like a funky pumpernickel loaf.
Shucks, I have them all over where my cattle roam, step in them every day no big thing.
Call it that if you wish, but that sumbitch can be measured in courics.
SORRY BUT...THAT long seismic mountainous ridge that runs along the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean...ISN'T THAT OLD!
Looks like the Obamas that bison leave on the prairie.
Actually, they’re Prius Eggs.
A couple BRAZILLIAN leagues beneath the sea...
“Actually, theyre Prius Eggs.”
I donno. That does look an awful lot like a sea turdle.
