Great piece. This cave and Lower Kane in the US and Villa LuZ are current time examples of how Carlsbad Caverns and its neighbors were formed by sulfuric acid - eaten out from inside - as opposed to carbonic acid formation in limestone caves. The organisms in all these current caves are quite unique. Thanks for posting.
