AH_Cave Invertebrates Feeding Mammal Dropping Nutrient Flow_3685.jpg
Dropping of a small mammal, possibly an Edible Dormouse (Glis Glis), discovered inside a cave a few metres from the entrance. Springtails (Collembola) and a juvenile Giant Cave Woodlouse (Titanethes albus) can be seen here feeding on the dropping. The nutrients contianed in the dropping are spread deeper into the cave system once these invertebrates disperse. Slovenia. March.
