Movile cave, which is isolated from the world for 5.5 million years, and the interesting creatures it hosts

In Romania, a cave called Movile, which was closed for 5.5 million years, was discovered.
The movile cave is a cave whose natural inlets were closed 5.5 million years ago due to geological activities. 20 meters below the surface. was discovered under a dump in romania. The movile cave can be thought of as a balloon compressed into a rock.
The movile cave is home to a number of existing living things, despite its 5.5 million years of isolation. these creatures are species such as centipedes, cockroaches, thrushes and spiders, but they are slightly different from what we know. 5.5 million years of isolation and absolute-darkness of the cave caused evolution to follow a different process.
Although macro species in the cave are familiar to us in terms of their general morphology, they are completely blind and their skins are colorless or translucent. while living creatures tend to spend less energy and hence act very slowly in known caves; The creatures in the movile cave are very active and are constantly changing places.
Macro organisms in the cave of movile generally concentrate around the bulky puddles in the cave. the water is covered with orange-foamy deposits. these deposits are actually hydrogen sulfide bacteria and form the base of the food chain of the movile cave. hydrogen sulfide bacteria extract energy from chemicals in water; This process is known as chemosynthesis. the fact that the underground source in the deep source is rich in hydrogen sulphide continuously feeds the pond; So the movile cave underground ecosystem is constantly being renewed.
the immaterial mobility of movile cave macro organisms fed with hydrogen sulfide bacteria suggests that chemosynthesis is a more efficient energy provider than photosynthesis.

As a result, 33 new gene sequences have been identified and classified in the movile cave.
