A few meters from the Tambura pass, proceeding on the CAI 148 path towards the summit, a small hole opens up on the right. It is an artificial cavity, with concrete walls, it is not one of the numerous karst caves that characterize this area. Perhaps it was an ancient deposit, or a small santabarbara for quarrying activities. If you dare to enter, however, you will not be disappointed: inside there is a small colony of Geotritons!
Do not disturb them, enter respectfully and do not try to handle them, please!
Geotritons are small amphibians that are almost exclusively widespread in Italy. They live in underground environments (where they reproduce) and come out only at night. They feed on insects or small invertebrates.
