    Glow Worms at Springbrook

    April 16, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 18 °C

    Springbrook National Park is home to the largest colony of glow worms in Australia. These creatures are not really worms but the larval stage of a fly. The fly only lives for a couple of days but the larvae life for around 8-9 months.

    The glow attracts its prey of mosquitoes and sandflies into its sticky strands of web. We need more of these guys. Sadly they only survive in quite wet areas.Read more

    Other things to see, Springbrook NP

    April 19, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    As I mentioned before, there is much to see besides the glow worms. Interesting fungi, intricate spider webs, rocks that have patterns and if you look very carefully, you can see the glow worm webs.

    The light they emit from their bodies attract insects. The vertical web filaments traps them for food. The creatures are not actually worms but are the larval stage of a fly. While the fly lives only a couple of days, mates and dies, the larvae have a long life of around 8-9 months.Read more
