Brazilian scientists have discovered an underground river some 4,000 meters (13,000) feet deep, which flows from west to east like the country's famous waterway.
"It is likely that this river is responsible for the low level of salinity in the waters around the mouth of the Amazon," the statement said.
Dump into it a few hundred gallons of dye and see where it pops up at
Even though the two rivers cover a similar path they have differences. The underground river flows at a far slower pace and empties into the ocean deep underground.

The "river" has been widely reported, after a study on it was presented to a Brazilian science meeting last week.
But the researchers involved told BBC News that water was moving through porous rock at speeds measured in cm, or inches, per year - not flowing.
