List Rules Vote up the cave photos too crazy for Planet Earth.

Have you always had a secret fear of caves but never quite known how to voice it? As it turns out, cave phobia is called speluncaphobia, a term others, like you, came up with to talk about their fear of cavernous maws of the earth.

Though speluncaphobia may not top the list of common fears, in some ways it is very similar to the more popular claustrophobia and even the lesser-known bathophobia, which is a fear of depths. All three of these fears have to do with how one perceives themselves in relation to spaces.

Whether you’re a diehard speluncaphobe who’s looking to face your fears head-on, or just looking to prove to your loved ones exactly how terrifying caves can be, then you’ve come to the right place. So strap on your hard hats and prepare to descend into what our ancestors literally thought were the gates of hell.
