Cambodia cave fauna 2008

This is some of the fauna I saw in caves in the Battambang province of Cambodia. All the caves were dry, and some were quite short with daylight penetrating.



It was interesting to see the cave fauna, most of which is very similar to that in Malaysia. The whip spiders seemed larger than those found in Malaysia.

We found a few bat caves, some of them we didn't enter, because the stench of guano was overpowering. One cave in particular smelt of pure ammonia.
