The stunning pictures below is a sight of rare and glowing bioluminescent shrimp in the sands of the Seto Inland Sea, Japan.
The bio-luminescent shrimp are scientifically known as Vargula Hilgendorfii, but are more commonly referred to as sea fireflies and locally known as “umihotaru.”
They are 3mm in length and live in the sand in shallow seawater, usually in the range between high and low tide. They feed at night which means they are actively swimming in the water close to shore.
