The scientists have known about biofluorescence for decades but it’s only in the last 10 years or so that they really started to tune into it. They found it in corals, jellyfish and fish but couple of months ago, for the first time ever a glowing sea turtle was discovered by two divers near the Solomon islands.
They were filming glowing corals in the area when all of a sudden a UFO like creature appeared underneath them glowing red and green. Not only is it the first time biofluorescence was discovered in a reptile, but it’s the first organism besides corals that has two tone fluorescence.
I don’t know about science and stuff, but this is one of the most fantastic, beautiful living thing I’ve ever seen.
