Youth Jar of Fireflies T-Shirt
Have you ever caught a firefly on a warm summer night? Chances are it was a common eastern firefly (Photinus pyralis). Like most fireflies, it communicates with patterns of flashing light. These signals are used to find and attract mates, deceive other firefly species, and avoid predators. While many organisms make their own light, called bioluminescence, fireflies are perhaps the most familiar.
This cute child's vintage style ringer t-shirt features a jar of fireflies and the Museum's logo. It's made of 100% cotton and is machine washable.
