GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The Grand Rapids Public Museum constantly welcomes new exhibits. Creature of Lights is the most recent, and features plants and creatures that glow.
From organisms that produce light, flickering fireflies found in backyards to deep sea fish, this exhibit has it all.
This exhibit is free with admission and free to Museum members.
In Creatures of Light, visitors move through a series of luminous environments, from the familiar mushrooms on land to the extreme in the deepest parts of the ocean, to explore the diversity of organisms that glow and how they do it. Visitors will discover the ways in which light is used to attract a mate, lure unsuspecting prey and defend against a predator, and to learn how, where and why scientists study this amazing natural phenomenon.
