Waitomo Caves

My family and I took a campervan trip in the holidays. On the way we stopped at Waitomo and went to the caves we got a tour of the caves.We saw a hole that was deep and lead to water and were told it was around 25 meters deep. We got to see how glowworms catch there prey. The lights change the roof into the night sky. Near the end of the tour we got into a boat and went around a cave. At one point and were told to look up and we saw the same hole that we saw before. On the walls there were tons of little lights of the glowworms.They send down a web to catch there prey.
