Lantern bugs in action

If you enjoyed the story of lantern bugs and their assorted visitors, you can see a clip from David Attenborough’s fabulous documentary “Life in the Undergrowth” featuring these remarkable animals. Incidentally, the movie shows the same insect individuals, filmed on the very same tree on which I took some of my photos at La Selva Biological Station in Costa Rica. If you have not seen this documentary, you absolutely must do it – it is, by far, the best series about terrestrial invertebrates ever made.

(Thanks to Adrian Thysse for finding this clip and posting it on his blog “Splendour awaits.”)

  1. Great clip, I’ve seen these little insects in the forest here in northern Costa Rica many a time. Till now I didn’t know anything about them. Thanks for posting it.
