Indeed, cave environments such as this cave are conducive to the creation of endemic species. Underwater cave, MayotteCrab guarding the cave.

Face to face with a shrimp guarding the cave. Face to face with this shrimp that walks among the stalactites that fell a long time ago.

A collapse more than 12,000 years old. The floor of the last room is covered with rock fragments that fell from the ceiling. These fragments collapsed before the cave was last submerged by rising sea levels about 12,000 years ago. This can be confirmed because there are small stalagmites forming on different parts of the blocks. Underwater cave, MayotteA collapse more than 12,000 years old.
