One concern that some people have with caving, or at least when they are considering getting into caving, is BATS!
And with bats the concern of rabies.
Well to be completely honest it is a very very rare occurrence, but it can happen.
Even with all that you can still recover from rabies.
Check out this story in which a 15 year old Brazilian boy recovered from rabies.
The teenager was bitten by a blood-sucking bat in the northeastern state of Pernambuco.
Ok so granted this is only the third confirmed case of someone recovering form rabies.
But thought it was a nice story and wanted to share.
Don't let bats or rabies stop you from beginning your caving career!
