Diamantinasaurus (Australian long-necked Sauropods) in a Glow Worm Cave

Here is a speculative illustration playing with the idea of dinosaurs entering caves to lick minerals, take shelter, etc. The illustration is based on something modern African elephants do in order to get minerals they need to keep their massive bodies healthy. The illustration also depicts glow-worms, which are bio luminescent insect larvae that inhabit caves in modern Australia & New Zealand, and which may have existed in the cretaceous, as many of their relatives are known from the fossil record.
