Glowing rainforest mushrooms, light-generating masses of Fireflies and deep sea fish attracting prey are included in this gallery of fascinating photos. When the sun disappears these species rev up their adaptations to signal potential mates, fish for their dinner and challenge rivals. Did you know that dried sea-fireflies were used as a light source by the Japanese army during World War II to read maps in dim light?
