Bill Nye the Science Guy

Caves (#407)

Bill Nye explores the world of caves. Stalactites, stalagmites and a host of creepy creatures make their homes in these naturally occurring hollow spaces. Caves form where ever material-- rock or ice--gets carried away from an underground space stiff enough to support a roof. There are caves under ice, caves under water, and caves under ground. Caves can exist almost anywhere. This episode's music video is "Cave Thing". [28 minutes] Closed Captioning
