  1. That gave me the heebie jeebies just looking @ it. Can’t imagine actually being there!

  2. Yeah, those look like cave crickets, which are obviously not normal, run-of-the-mill crickets, but are crickets nonetheless. They like dark, damp places (hence the name), so tunnels would be perfect for them.

    But *geeyaaaaah* nonetheless…
