Bio-luminescence in sea creatures is a phenomena that I have been interested in for some time – Mother Nature is an amazingly psychopathic mommy figure full of very interesting adaptations of human and animal behavior. Things like bio-luminescence, Circadian Rhythm, and the body’s generation of Melatonin are all things that fall under this category. Mother Nature, you so crazy!
A scientist and underwater explorer named David Gallo talked at TED back in 2007 about this very phenomenon. Check out the video below – you won’t be disappointed. David says that we’ve discovered about 3% of our planet, and every time that we find a new place in the ocean, it is usually filled with exciting new discoveries.
