Inside the Devil's IceBox
This is at the entrance to the 'Devil's Icebox', located within the Rock Bridge Memorial State Park in Columbia, MO. It is called the 'Devil's Icebox' because it stays cool even in hot Missouri summers at a consistent 56 degrees. It is home to bats and insects, including the pink planarian, a flatworm, that is only found in the cave and no where else in the world.
