SLOVENIA ~Postojna cave~

A strange animal from Slovenia and a great nightview of Vilnius arrived today...
I found on the internet: The Proteus looks like a salamander but because of the pink skin and the small arms and legs, it looks also a bit like a small human. This is the reason why it is also called "HumanFish".... But when a looked at the card a bit longer and closer, I can't see any simularity with a Human or maybe with a looot of imagination! :) :)
And Lithuania, a part of the three Baltic States is a totally unknown country for me....Vilnius is Europeans capital of Culture in 2009

The mysterious Postojna cave world is a part of Slovenia which have been carved, shaped and created by water throughout millions of years. People from all over the world have admired the stalagmites and stalactites in 175 years of organized tourism. The 20km long underworld system is a miracle itself where this rare animal called "HumanFish" or Proteus lives, which habitat is limited to this region.
