  1. have never
  2. was never

Vitor, very well. You've done it again!

Cave-fright = anxiety, fear, or persistent phobia which may be aroused in an individual inside a cave in which s/he may possibly encounter unexpected perils or traps such as an unseen deep hole into which he may fall or the entire cave suddenly caving in on him/her getting him/her trapped. Lack of oxygen or heart failure usually ensues amid desperate cries for help.
