An Ancient Cave Was Just Discovered Underneath A Texas Neighborhood And You Need To See It
Texas is home to more than 3,000 known caves and sinkholes — emphasis on “known.” As we discovered just last month, there are ancient caverns hiding right under our noses! After part of the road in a Round Rock neighborhood collapsed, a massive cave estimated to be more than 10 million years old was discovered underneath several homes. How it managed to remain undetected for all this time remains a mystery, but one thing’s for sure: it’s an incredible anomaly that deserves some attention.
