It might be winter outside, but inside the Desert Dome you will find deserts from around the world.  But that is only half of what there is to see beneath the geodome above.  Once you have walked through the deserts, take a turn down the stairs and head into the underworld.  One of the first area’s you enter is a subterranean cave as real in appearance, as many a cave system that mother nature has carved out of the ground.  As you walk through the dark cavern you will come face-to-face with bats which fly within inches of your body.   All that separates you from them is a very thin mess of netting.  I would not recommend sticking a finger in through the net as I am not exactly sure what all the different types to be found are?

Here caught in the camera flash are some bats frozen in mid-flight.
