Just came back from dayang over the weekend.
Seen these Red & Green Bioluminescense during the night dive.
it's kinda like the fireflies on land, but it's green & red in water.
Too bad no pix to show... :(

Does anyone knows the scientific name for it???
There's sunshine after the rain...

  • Thanks Limk!
    didn't know that they'll be washed up on shore.
    Though can only see them under water

  • Tioman has the same thing. In the dark, just flap your hands like a lunatic and you get your own fireworks show
