Air and water temperature, air humidity and water oxygen levels were studied in Gargina Dupka Cave (Rhodopes Mts., Bulgaria). These environmental factors were considered for three zones of the cave: 1 ? cave entrance, 2 ? typical cave in the central gallery, and 3 ? an area occupied by bat guano. During two visits all animals were collected from these areas. In the laboratory, after identification they were classified according to their ecological features as: relation to light, way of moving, diet, and substrates on which they were collected.
