Prehistoric Cave Discovered in Israel
Quarry workers digging through limestone recently found an unexpected surprise near Tel Aviv, Israel: A cave system that stretches for 1.6 miles and is located 300 feet below the surface, making it Israel’s second largest limestone cave. Named Ayalon Cave, it contains eight (and counting!) previously undiscovered species of crustaceans that are adapted for life in pitch black conditions.
