When we’re out exploring caves, we sometimes find in the entrances, animals like porcupines, hyraxes (called “rock rabbits”), or evidence (poop) of others like hyenas. Farther into the cave, you’ll sometimes find thick clouds of bats or just one or two. Since this is Africa and the sediments we’re in are very old, we find lots of fossils, but not often the kind we’re looking for, though they’re ALL amazing. To be honest, though, the thing that you find the MOST in caves is TRASH, particularly in the entrances. The entrances to caves seem to attract an unholy amount of tires, beer bottles, dead animals, and worst of all, dirty baby diapers!
You never know what you’ll find exploring, and sometimes you don’t even know what you’re looking for until you find it!
