Fireflies are also known “Lightning Bugs” and they shine brightly at the night to attract a partner. While we humans tend to chat up our prospective partners, fireflies send each other little light signals. Apparently they shine during the day too but we just can't see it. They are only seen at night in “Berembang” trees along the Selangor River. I...more

Fireflies are available all over the world. In lowlands and in highlands. Mangrove forest is one sure place that fireflies appear and also in good numbers.
