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.
