The first time I saw glowworms in New Zealand was over 5 years ago on an action packed trip with @legendaryblackwaterraftingco in the Waitomo Caves. Gazing up it felt like I was looking at a universe of blue stars ✨ turns out I was looking at a ceiling of bright shiny maggots! I love Mother Nature ❤️ Māori call them titiwai, which refers to lights reflected in water, and they are carnivorous glowing larvae that drip down a long sticky thread in dark damp environments that entangle insects they attract with their glowing lights! Too cool! . . . . #glowworm #waitomo #waitomocaves #glowwormcave #newzealand #nzmustdo #blackwaterrafting
