630-foot sinkhole in China reveals massive ancient forest world

” . . . Chinese spelunkers were astonished after discovering a massive 630-foot sinkhole that harbored a forest at the bottom — and possibly other life-forms — like something out of “The Lost World.” The pit is one of 30 known sinkholes located in Leye County, South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, Xinhua News Agency reported.
“I wouldn’t be surprised to know that there are species found in these caves that have never been reported or described by science until now,” Chen Lixin, who led the Guangxi 702 cave expedition team that discovered the chasm, told Live Science.
The team discovered the capacious crater Friday, descending 328 feet and then hiking several hours to reach the base of the capacious crater a la “Journey To the Center of the Earth.” They then returned safely to the surface that same evening.” . . .(more + PHOTOS)
