A mass of brown round round objects. There are thousands of these "balls" in this "collection". These mass of round objects are vertically stuck high up the cave wall so I have to zoom my camera to take these pictures. I am not sure what these are, possibly cocoons, eggs or somethings else. The patch is about 1 to 2 meters wide with each "ball" about 5mm to 1cm in diameter.
Attached vertically on the wall of a cave in Agop Batu Tulug Archaeological Museum, located beside the highway between Sandakan and Lahad Datu, Sabah.
Map accuracy : 1km diameter. I hope somebody can shed some lights on these unusual objects.
Hi Mark, this is the cave, the chamber is quite small and bright. http://www.wongfookyee.com/HTML/Shirley/...
The patch is about 1 to 2 meters wide with each ball about 5mm to 1cm in diameter and they are seem to be made up of mud. Possibly wasp cocoons ?
Could bats have disgorged this?
There's my vote Chun. How far into the caves? What size is the patch overall? I am always radiant and imaginative. Now let's ID the cave cricket eating it. 8-)
