Nature’s Night Lights

Ryan was showing me some video of a hornet killing a cicada whilst we discussed posts about bugs. Then, I suddenly stumbled upon this video of a glowing trilobite beetle. Watch how it lights up in the dark like a raver’s glowstick. The ‘net doesn’t say too much about the creature but I did find this information on Mahalo:

The Trilobite Beetle is a beetle from Borneo that resembles the extinct Trilobite. The short YouTube video of the oddly shaped insect has been viewed more than 200,000 times. Borneo, Southeast Asian island on which the beetle resides, is renowned for its abundant flora and fauna.

I’d like to scoop 20 of these suckers up and throw them in a jar with some grass and air holes. Boom. Instant DIY night light.
