These formations were so unique and amazingly like a lion's tail. Can't imagine how they named them . . . LOL!

We bought the Carlsbad Caverns book at the book store which explained how this formation came into existence.

“Use your imagination”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

It's really looked like a lion's tail. For my family, we always like to play a game to guess the name of the bizzard stones in the cavern. Use your imagination, you might find a better name for those stalagmites and stalactites.

“Cool formation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

This cool formation is just part of the big room area.There is more Bigger formations in the big room so I dont get why It has to be a stand-along review.

A stalactite with quite a unique form. As soon as you see "the lion's tail", you'll know you're looking at it!
