What are the things I can find in cave?

You can find things like fossils, artifacts, and other geological oddities in caves. These geological oddities include minerals and crystals that have been formed through natural processes and erosion of rocks over time.
There are also human remains and ruins from cities found within caves. There is evidence that humans have used caves for as much as 2 million years. Some of the earliest known evidence of humans living in caves was found on the island of Crete in Greece (500,000-200,000 BC).
Caves provide a refuge from predators and extreme weather conditions. They also provide warmth during harsh winters because they often contain thick deposits of bat guano.

1. People have been hiding at caves for centuries, but that doesn’t mean they’re secure against predators like bears and other animals. 2. The first known cave is thought to be found in the region between Giza and Lisht, Egypt, although more recent research has revealed that there may be others before then. 3. The low light levels inside caves make them ideal places for studying various biological and geological specimens (like crystals).

Are caves hazardous?

The answer to this question is a resounding yes. Caves are very dangerous and can be life-threatening if you go wrong or are careless, especially in narrow caves with no lighting. Cave formations can also change rapidly, so itג€™s important to stay alert and not to go any deeper than you know how to get back out of.

Why are caves important to the earth?

Caves are one of the most important natural features on Earth. Not only do they provide humans with places to live, but they also provide a significant amount of water, oxygen and food for plants and animals. More than that, caves are relatively stable in the face of climate change because they are often made of more resistant rocks than others. They also act as natural air filters which help keep cities clean and air fresh!
