They are dark, sometimes forbidding landscapes molded by volcanic eruptions or subterranean streams, but caves are also home to a host of creatures strangely adapted to the underworld.
Many of these organisms are pale, furtive and multi-legged. Some lack eyes or other light-sensing organs altogether. Others, like bats and cave crickets, roost in caves by day and forage in the outer world at night.
