One of the most crucial locality of paleontology in Europe, famous for the Ursus spelaeus remains, but several other currently living species can also be found here in the cave. Numerous museums present the bones originally coming from here. The several bone trades, which were abundant once, could cause real dangeours to the scientists. The actual dangeour nowadays is when old bones are collected, then being bored with them, thrown away. Thus historical information is also lost, which is a severe harm to scientific research.

We shall look for the answers to such questions as: Why did animals disappear here? Did they die at the same time, or one after the other? If they died at the same time, what was the catastrophy causing such harm to them? Everything can hold information within this cave. For this reason this is called an A category cave, a category which includes only the most valuable caves, which due their scientific or individual character seem to be the typical examples of the national and international cave heritage. There are no creatures within the cave, its length is 340m. After a sliding part, there comes a large hall and a channel.
