POST-PAUSE Living Lights
WHEN: Jun. 29 - Dec. 31, Monday-Sunday, 10am–5pm
WHERE: The Maritime Aquarium, 10 N. Water Street, Norwalk, CT

Meet amazing animals with the natural ability to glow in the dark in “Living Lights,” a special exhibit open now in The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk. “Living Lights” introduces guests to some of the most fascinating creatures in the sea; animals that can give off light through a process called bioluminescence. Live animals displayed include pinecone fish, flashlight fish, chain catsharks, crystal jellyfish and more. In addition to the marine animals in “Living Lights,” terrestrial examples featured include a scorpion – they’re naturally fluorescent – and a common forest fungus (Panellus stipticus) that glows as its spores mature. Displays explain the mechanics of bioluminescence and explore how bioluminescence is used by animals to attract mates, find prey and deter predators. Guests also can learn about medical and environmental advances made possible through the study of bioluminescent and fluorescent organisms. “Living Lights” is free with Aquarium admission.
