Storyline

The Earth's large, deep calcareous caves are virtually inaccessible and therefore barely explored - requiring expert diving where flooded. Some of its wildlife is as strange and specific as in the deep, darkest part of the ocean, whether physically adapted -notably to the dark. Nevertheless, some caves(did) play an important part in native cultures, even as sources of fresh water for some Mayan cities. Written by KGF Vissers

Just Few Caves to display in an episode only!!!
17 December 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

The running time around 45 minutes only, it's really a short time to show several large Caves around the world, spend so much time in the environments and news species of fishes, spiders and bats to quote just a few, often focusing at Mexican's caves called water wells displayed for miles acctually an underground fresh water, or when it mix up with salt water, should be includes Brazil's largest caves located at Peruaçu valley and others places, exposing many kinds of them, in this fourth episode has a decrease of quality over this marvelous series, in any case don't let you sleep along the show, but must to be better!!!
