Excerpt: The Gruta Rei do Mato is a cave located near Sete Lagoas in Minas Gerais, Brazil, at the edge of the BR 040 highway, close to the off ramp to the city. From Sete Lagoas the cave can easily be reached by bus, taxi or car. Sete Lagoas is 70 kilometres from Belo Horizonte. The Gruta Rei do Mato has four large chambers with numerous stalactites, stalagmites and rimstone dams. In the Room of the Rarities are nearly identical parallel columns, formed by the calcium carbonate crystals of calcite. These columns are more than 20 meters high (13 m in height ?) and 30 centimeters in diameter. Gruta Rei do Mato means "Cave of the Forest King" in Portuguese. This name of the cave is derived from the nickname "Rei do Mato" or "Forest King." According to many tourist guides, the "Rei do Mato" was a fugitive in either the Gruta Rei do Mato or in a small cave next to it. According to the authors of DonaBrasil.com, he lived in a hut near the Gruta Rei do Mato The limestone area north of Belo Horizonte is called the Sete Lagoas Formation. It was there that the Lagoa Santa Karst developed. The area around Sete Lagoas has many cave systems, of which the Gruta Rei do Mato is the most famous. In the nearby Parque da Cascata is a collapsed karst crater which can be recognised by some stalactites that are oriented horizontally as a result of the collapse. In a small cave next to the Gruta Rei do Mato, 4,000 to 6,000-year-old cave paintings were discovered, as well as the skeleton of Xenorrinoterium bahiense, an extinct animal. There is currently a replica of this animal in the cave. ...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=123091
