deer cave - mulu (borneo)

Photos of Deer Cave in Gunung Mulu National Park (Borneo Island)

Deer Cave is a passage about 150 m (500 feet) in diameter and about 1 Km (0.­6 Miles) long, opened on both end.­ It was, for many years, considered the largest single cave passage in the world.­

Deer Cave is home to about 4 million Wrinkle Lipped Bats that live in colonies high up in the cave ceiling.­ Every evening all the bats fly out in huge swarms and clouds to feed.­ View my video of the swarm of bats leaving Deer Cave.

For more information about Deer Cave, read en.­wikipedia.­org/­wiki/­Deer_­Cave.
