The entrance to Wind Cave (Gua Angin) at Mulu in northern Sarawak. Note the tourists right down at the bottom and the shrubs growing in the entrance to the cave. Many of the shrubs are fig plants the result of fruit bat defecation. Small fruit bats (Cynopterus species)  roost above the entrance and  (Penthetor lucasi) deep inside the cave.
