      What a surprise! You can see them all the time you want, or are part of the guided tour to the cave and only can visit the enclosure for a limited time? I´d love to go there, but not sure if worths if you only can see them for a few minutes...

      It was part of a guided tour in the cave. We were given ~5 minutes to see them, a time in which they lit up the exhibit to get better pics. It is still really difficult to get focus right though because you cannot see anything in the viewfinder ;), just a matter of luck.

      Sorry for replying so late, didn't get a notification for some reason.

      No problem! :) Thank you for the info. Is a pity you only can see them for so few time, but the fact they lit up lights is a great pro. This species have been on my wishlist since I knew about its existence, so I think I´ll plan a trip there next year.

      @Merintia It's in an absolutely beautiful area so I would highly recommend it. :)
