Cave Mysteries

The Makauwahi Cave on the island of Kauai is a time capsule of the Hawaiian Islands. Discovered in 1992, the cave contains an astonishing array of fossils and artifacts that have yielded insights into everything from the turtle-jawed moa nalo to the arrival of Captain Cook. All of which would make it the most extraordinary cave in Hawaii, if this hadn't happened.
