We’ll be the first ones to tell you that we are extremely claustrophobic.
There’s no way in hell we’d ever even think about squeezing our body into a tiny hole in order to explore a cave — no matter how extraordinary it is said to be.
Watching these cavers struggle to get themselves to fit through the alternate entrance to a cave is totally freaking us out.
Test your hip and chest size by trying to squeeze through the alternate entrance to Deep Cave at the Deep and Punkin Nature Preserve in Edwards County, Texas. The rest of the cave is huge and incredibly decorated with crystalline helictites, flowstone, draperies, and various other intensely colorful formations.
Try not to hyperventilate as you watch the video above.
