A team of speltologists recently examined a new giant carrot in Leia County in southern China, bringing the number of crows in the region to 30, and inside the region, researchers discovered a real ecosystem, with some trees as high as 40 metres [40 m].
In detail, rain water becomes more acidic as it passes through the soil because of carbon dioxide absorption, then it leaks down and flows through the cracks, gradually expanding them over time. If the underground chamber becomes large enough, the ceiling may gradually collapse, leaving huge caves and carpal craters.
South China is known for its karst terrain, so this new discovery is not very surprising in itself, but it is always interesting to explore these natural carrots, a copy that was discovered in the Juang Autonomous District of Guangxi, near the village of Pinye.
Last Friday, a team of Caves and Speleologists went down to the cave. The depth of the gap is 192 metres. The interior is 306 metres long and 150 metres wide. On the bottom, researchers discovered three entrances to the caves and ancient trees about 40 metres high.
According to Chen Lisin, who led an expeditionary group into the cave, the thick under-forest covering the floor was "highest to the human shoulders".
These karst caves and divides can also become a real oasis of life. Researchers will not be surprised if some of the species found in these caves have never been registered or described by science before.
Deep structures not only provide a haven for life, but also a guide to underground aquifers, which alone provide water to more than 700 million people around the world.
