Glowworm caves

You can find the Waitomo Glowworm Caves  on the North Island of New Zealand. Its name comes from two Maori words: wai, that means water, and tomo, that means hole.
These caves became really famous thanks to their population of glowworms (arachnocampa luminosa) that lives only in New Zealand. To survive this kind of glowworm only needs an horizonatal ceiling, where  it can put its sticky feeding lines, and a cover place, where the wind won’t dry them. With its bioluminescence it makes a suggestive and magical atmposphere inside the Waimoto Caves.
Don’t you wish to go see this wonderful sight live?
