Small bones of rodents, frogs, lizards and birds have been discovered in the talus cone (cave in-fill) at the back of the cave. This cave has the best example in the region of a relatively young talus cone (a few thousand years old), which helps us understand how the older caves in the area were filled in.

Although the lower reaches of the cave were severely damaged by mining activities in the late 1800s, it contains dripstone formations as beautiful as those in the Cango Caves. It also has a resident bat population.
