Scientists have discovered a new species of luminous creatures in the Red Sea, living in colonies as garlands of 'fluorescent lanterns' and emitting a green glow. 


These molluscs bury themselves in the sediment during the day and at night crawl out to the surface to hunt other invertebrates.


The researchers suggest that glow around the mouth of polyps may attract prey. "Fluorescent flashlights" may be visible to other invertebrates in the moonlight, and at sunset and sunrise.
