Glow in the dark fungi

Ever wanted to glow in the dark? Around 75 species of mushrooms can! In one of nature’s most secretive light shows, these mushrooms glow to attract spore-spreading bugs which spread the fungi’s spores further afield. There is a short window to witness this special show — a few weeks a year. 99% of the time the fungi remain underground. Aboriginal tribes in Australia believed they carried a special power and it was regarded to be a fearful spirit!
