Yes, you got that right! Mushrooms that actually glow! Did you know that glowing mushrooms do exist in the natural habitats of reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates? These bioluminescent mushrooms generate and emit light naturally. This happens when an organic compound they contain called luciferin reacts with oxygen to form oxyluciferin which then decays and releases energy in the form of light. There are more than 70 species of such mushrooms.
Exo Terra's Glow Mushrooms appear to grow out of decaying wood as they would in the wild. The "wood" is hollow and resembles a dark cave where reptiles can safely hide, sleep or lay their eggs.
The mushrooms absorb light during the day and emit light at night. The light emitted is a dim glow that will not disturb the natural sleep cycle of your terrarium dwellers. The mushrooms create a twilight atmosphere that is particularly liked by nocturnal animals.
