Extraordinary cave animal found

6 posts in this topic

This new troglodyte is the first of its order from Central Asia and the first strictly subterranean terrestrial creature recorded in the country.

Thank you. But the photo is of a centipede not the troglodyte (person who dwells in a cave), as promised in the first paragraph!

Troglodyte can mean any animal that lives underground.

I have been called a troglodyte. But not in that context.
