This video includes snippets showing exactly what it was like to crawl through those narrow tunnels to get at the Homo naledi fossil site.

No, thank you. Can we get one of those big subway tunnel excavators to the cave? It needs widening.

    I am involved in mineral exploration. When I first saw that folks were potholing it in I thought it was a worthwhile exercise in putting oneself in the mind set of the OP using that cave. My second thought was “No f***ing chance would I do that myself or allow an underground worker to do that. Just too freaky. I then looked to see what would be involved in droppping a rise into that place. Not much information. I then determined there was no way I would allow a JSA ( Job Safety Analysis) to go ahead involving such an expedition. Call me chicken I don’t care. I have been involved in collapses and lived to tell. Just saying.

    I came to this blog for the debunking of various quacks, I stayed for the pictures and videos of various creatures.

    Thanks for lighting a candle in the dark.
