Mysteries of the Devil’s Hole

The Hole itself is a 5.5×1.8 m gap, filled with water. The distance to the water mirror is about 90m. “Near” because the distance is constantly fluctuating, and in a pretty significant limits. Mechanism of this interesting natural phenomena are incomprehensible, although a connection is established between the level change water in a crevice with the gravitational impact of the moon.

Found the reason for the strange fainting near the Hole. The reason they were methane emissions from the bottom of the mine. If at this moment is close man – gas poisoning is provided to him. But where in the crevice methane? And why is its appearance on the surface of a character emissions rather than uniform release?

Bottomless hole

The first attempt yielded nothing. The cable caught on something and broke off. The second attempt also ended. There were rumors that in in the depths lives an animal devouring the descent equipment. Not all the attempts ended so fatally, but the main task is to reach the bottom – never been completed. The hole was bottomless.

In 1999, scientists tried to look at the bottom of the Hole, dropping into her camera. It turned out that at a depth of 80 m. The cave is expanding, and so much that its walls are already not visible. At a depth of 230m. the camera has become swing and circle. (Whirlpool? Animal?) The searchlight went out. At raising the camera recorded a bluish outgoing from the depths glow. Alive organisms? It soon turned out that life in the Hole There really is a devil!

The representative of the living world in the hole was a small fish (1.9 – 2.5 cm.) – the carp-tooth of the Devil’s Hole, living only here. Now, twice a year, scuba divers descend into the crevice and piece by piece (!) count the fish. In 2005, there were 84 of them. IN 2013 – already only 38. In order to save the endangered species repeatedly attempts have been made to colonize other water bodies with similar living conditions, but all attempts ended in failure.
