#DoYouKnow in February 2019 the largest cave fish was discovered in Jaintia Hills of Meghalaya it is nearly 5 times the mean length i.e. 400 mm(15.8 inches) in standard length making it, by far, the largest known subterranean fish found to date. #MyGreenAssam #WorldEnvironmentDay
The fish was encountered by a biologist on an expedition, in Meghalaya. There are many caves in the region due to the abundant karst and limestone, which can be carved by rainwater. And there’s a lot of it—the state is one of the rainiest places on Earth. #MyGreenAssam
Meghalaya has an elaborate and extensive network of caves. Several international and Indian researchers have been mapping the caves since 1992 in association with Meghalaya Adventurers Association and the latest find is part of that project. #MyGreenAssam #WorldEnvironmentDay
