The Caves of Crown Point Tobago, West Indies
Ralph E. Eshelman and Fred Grady


Four caves on the island of Tobago, three previously unrecorded, were explored, mapped, and prospected for vertebrate paleontological resources. The caves and surface features, such as dry valleys and sinkholes, suggest they were part of a single large cave system which we have designated the Crown Point Cave System. The largest, deepest, and most interesting cave is Amblypygid Cave. Archaeological resources of Effigy Cave and paleontological resource of Robinson Crusoe and Remnant Caves indicate all of these caves are valuable resources to the island of Tobago and should be protected.
