Hi Jayant,

Welcome to Cavechat. We'd love to have you post up reports of your caving and speleology! It's always great to hear what people are working on.

Hi! I am a geologist, but I don't do cave geology. I was a sedimentologist/paleontologist/geochemist sort. Now I work in aerospace.

BUT! :-)

I've been caving in India. I went to Meghalaya 4 years ago and am planning to return soon. There was a lot of life in the caves there. And it was big, too. The bats were much larger than in the US. I've seen frogs in caves in just two locations, Cuba in India. Undoubtedly there are some elsewhere, but those are the only places I've been to that had them.

The most amazing thing were the snakes. I'd seen rattlesnakes in the entrances of caves in the desert US, but there were snakes in the caves in India that were wayyyyyyyyyyy back inside. We figured they were eating the bats. We took digital photographs and the locals said they were "Green basket" snakes and they weren't poisonous.
