171- THE WORLD'S MOST FASCINATING HISTORY MYSTERIES #5...DEER CAVE....BORNEO!....

Ready for this one?
Deer Cave, in Borneo's Mulu National Park, is the world's largest cave, or rock chamber! The entrance and main area is soooo large that forty Boeing 748s, side by side, will fit. It is so large that five of London's St. Paul's Cathedrals would fit inside the entrance area with a bit of room to spare.
Wooden plank walks have been built for approaching the Deer Cave entrance! Inside, the wooden plank walk continue for a time.
But beware at exactly 5pm each day...over a million bats leave that huge entrance, searching for food.
And did I mention what else lives is in the cave? For centuries, bat guano has accumulated on the cave floor, and is home to........................millions of roaches and other creepy-crawly critters
There are photos on the Internet...go to Deer Cave, Borneo!
