  2. Vernon Unsworth:

    Physically, it's not a hard cave, it's just very long and it has big passages, small passages, it's not difficult but if the children have gone in too far then the floodwaters from the far end will be coming through. With the rain, it's not making it any easier.

    Ancient DNA technique is a really powerful tool, it tells us quite definitively that the Red Deer Cave people were modern humans instead of an archaic species, such as Neanderthals or Denisovans, despite their unusual morphological features.

  4. Neil Bennett:

    The mountain itself will work like a bathtub holding the water. The cave system below is effectively the escape route for that water. So as soon as the rain builds up in some part of the mountain system, the water level is going to rise in the caves, the predictions of the water that's coming, of the rain that's coming, is going to heighten the danger now for those in the cave system. So they'll be back to a more difficult situation, with very strong flooding, very strong currents to fight against, and the visibility will be very poor.

  5. Tyler Hubbard:

    We'll probably put this trophy in the man cave.
