Youth LS Firefly Frenzy T-Shirt
A frenzy of fireflies swarm about this long-sleeved navy t-shirt. It was made for the Museum's newest exhibition Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence. Available in children's sizes, it's made of 100% heavy cotton and is machine washable.
A firefly's light seems rare and magical. Yet there are many living things that blink, glow, flash, and glitter. The deep-sea anglerfish lures prey with a glowing "lure." Cave-dwelling glowworms catch insects with their glimmering tails. Bioluminescent organisms range from sharks to mushrooms. They emit light from different body parts, in an array of colors, and for a variety of purposes. They may glow to attract mates, hunt, or defend themselves.
