The tunnel was found under the Pyramid of the Moon, the second-largest structure in the ancient city (the largest is the Pyramid of the Sun), according to the International Business Times. The archaeologists who discovered it believe that it mirrors the Teotihuacans great monuments and may represent the underworld in the belief system of the pre-Colombian, 2,000-year-old civilization that built it (a civilization thought to pre-date the Aztecs, who later occupied the site).
The tunnel is long, extending from the central square known as the Plaza de la Luna to the nearby pyramid. It is about 33 feet (10 meters) deep, and is similar to other tunnels that have been discovered recently, like the tunnel that was found under the Temple of the Plumed Serpent.
While no one has been able to go inside the tunnel yet, the discovery was made through a method known as electrical resistivity tomography, which creates subterranean images. A team of archaeologists from Mexico's National Institute of Anthropology and History was using the technique as part of their conservation efforts for the central square when they stumbled upon the tunnel.
The Pyramid of the Moon was likely used for human sacrifice and other rituals, based on studies of human remains found at burial sites. It is unclear what the tunnel may have been used for, and archaeologists plan to do more research to determine its purpose and whether or not it contains more artefacts

Nothing good, that's for sure.
so it’s not really a new tunnel.
It doesn’t sound particularly wise to be tunneling about under pyramids now does it? These miscreants should cease tunneling immediately.
Hamas was building tunnels way back then?
Extra grain storage.
In this country, the natives lived in tee-pees.....why the difference in cultures???
[The Pyramid of the Moon was likely used for human sacrifice and other rituals, based on studies of human remains found at burial sites.]
As more and more of these demonic ritual sites are being discovered by archaeologists (example: wall of skulls in Mexico), will their quest for their purpose and whether or not they contain more artifacts conjure up demons?
Seems that way sometimes, doesn’t it?
There are ruins of Indian cities. Maybe the aridity of the southwestern US forced a nomadic lifestyle on the inhabitants, unable to farm to any large extent. Central America is lush, no need to pull up stakes periodically and follow the seasons.
It sounds to me like it is a really old tunnel.
At least this one wasnt made by smugglers at the border
A couple if random thoughts about tunnels under cities and temples
With examples found in Vegas stage shows, Chicagoland, and Disneyworld...
Leave without being seen
Make things materialize (guards, priests, bounty and livestock) without climbing the pyramid. Disney can produce guards on the scene as directed from a high vantage point.
Prehistoric Illegal immigrants used it...
A subway for chariots was started but ended up costing to much as the local politicians and insiders skimmed off their shares so they covered up the crime with a pyramid.
This is where we get the term “Pyramid scheme” from......
