I would say its for animals. Its nothing more than a stone fence. I don't think people have noticed there four foot tall walls.
The image you linked to is from the supposed "Adam's Calender", in Africa, which has no bearing on these (Adam's Calender itself is a highly
dubious claim). From the article there are no actual walls, only the indications left in the surface of where walls once stood, or in a few cases,
minimal walls that don't bely their function. That's what makes these so mysterious, images like this one linked to below states there is a ring of
cairns along the outside perimeter of the ring.

Am I the only one who thinks if it is for animals where the hell are the entrances !?
I know a thing or two about animals corrals and I know that there has to be a way in and a way
these aren't animal corrals it even says in the article they have no apparent purpose
It's only speculation by people in this thread (myself included) that these may have been corrals, but nothing found indicates what they were. In
of the photos they look like corrals or kralls, similar to those in Africa, but in some (like the photo linked above) the purpose looks
completely unknown. Also, from the photos alone, it's impossible to say what sort of openings were present, I can discern a number of gaps in the
ring or between various spokes, but that's hardly conclusive. It may be these served more than one purpose, somewhere between utilitarian (corrals)
and religious or for burials on the other, or even as the article suggests, as geoglyphs.
It's a poorly titled article, comparing these to the Nazca lines isn't justified based on what they've discovered.
