    It’s a cute quiz, but it’s not entirely accurate… Despite a few typos (such as speleotheRm) a couple facts are mismatched. For one, it classifies raccoons and bats in the same beiospeleology category. Yes, Raccoons are trogloxenes as they use the entrance or twilight zone as shelter. Bats are not a trogloxene. They are adapted to the cave environment and live large portions of their lives there. They are a troglophile. Spiders and crickets would not be troglophiles as they can not venture to far from the entrance. You only tend to find them in caves during harsh weather conditions. So they are a trogloxene. Now if they had specified cave cricket and not just said cricket, then it would have been correct. Cave Crickets are adapted to the environment of a cave and are therefore a troglophile.
