  • Just one of the many spectacular formations you will see on the walk around the big room. It really does look like a lion's tail. 
  • The Lions Tail was one of my favorite spots! A must see! Don't forget to catch the bay show! The Lions Tail was my favorite spot! 
  • This is one of the great sights inside the Carlsbad cavern, it really does look like a lions tail. I asked the Rangers at the end how it had formed like that and the answer is fascinating!!
