A group of Scientists visited the deep, dark cave of North-Eastern Indian state of Meghalaya in search of a newly discovered cave-dwelling fish. It is found in the Jantia caves, it is the longest natural cave in India.
Cave dwelling fish is a type of fish that lives underground in caves. There are over 250 species of fish in the world living in dark caves with scarce food. Most of these fish are small, generally less than 8.5 cms long as they have less food to prey and eat.
The cave-dwelling fish discovered in Meghalaya’s Chympe caves measures over 40 cm long, which is much longer than any other known cave fish.
