You’ll Want To Visit The Giant Sinkhole In Texas That Is Home To Millions Of Bats

On the edge of the Edwards Plateau in Rocksprings lies a 400 foot deep cavern by the name of The Devil’s Sinkhole. It’s the largest single-chamber and third deepest cavern in the state, which is good because the four million Mexican Free-Tailed bats that make their home here during summertime take up quite a bit of room. Every night at dusk, the sky turns into a blanket of swirling blackness as the creatures emerge from the depths of the hole. You can witness the spectacle for yourself from Wednesday through Sunday – tours are held each night of the season.

Directions to the park can be found here.

Have you ever been to The Devil’s Sinkhole? What did you think of the bats?
