Description

Explore the natural phenomenon of "living light" with an array of organisms - from the flickering fireflies in the backyard to the deep-sea fishes in the oceans’ darkest depths. The ability to generate light is rare among plants and animals that live on land, but up to 90 percent of animals below 2,300 feet provide the only source of light in the depths of the ocean. Spark your curiosity with larger-than-life models, live fish and interactive displays in this exhibition. Move through a series of re-created environments to discover the glowworm webs on the ceiling of New Zealand’s Waitomo caves, the "pyrotechnic" plankton in Puerto Rico’s Mosquito Bay, and special lighting on the coral walls of the Cayman Island’s Bloody Bay.
