The Field Museum presents Creatures of Light. Nature’s Bioluminescence, an exhibition on view March 7, through Sept. 8, 2013.

Creatures of Light delves into the mysterious world of bioluminescence – from the glowworms dangling from the ceiling of New Zealand’s famous Waitomo Caves, to the deep-sea fishes that illuminate the perpetually dark depths of the oceans. Discover the variety of ways in which light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey, or defend against a predator, and see how scientists study this amazing ability to glow. Immerse yourself in these magical environments and revel in the beauty of this remarkable natural phenomenon.

Creatures of Light: Nature’s Bioluminescence is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with The Field Museum, Chicago and the Canadian Museum of Nature, Ottawa, Canada. http://fieldmuseum.org
