Fireflies produce a chemical reaction inside their bodies that allows them to light up in a process known as bioluminescence. But WHY do they do it? Most spiders have eight eyes. In some species four of those eyes have a reflective layer behind their retinas, called a tapetum. But WHAT makes them reflective? WHAT birds can we see at night that aren’t active during the day?
