Introducing the Caves: Glow worms

This post will be brief but awesome.

Did you know that there are little insects that glow (like lightning bugs/fireflies) underground in caves?

Well, there are.

     They use a chemical process called bioluminescense, just like lightning bugs do.  See them?  They are clustered - hundreds of them - along the ceiling of this cave over the water.

My imagination is spinning with possibilities...

Yes, there will be glow worms in my story.
