The existence of these worms produces a game of light in the darkness of the cave, providing an amazing experience for cave visitors.

Glowworm is a bioluminescent insect that can produce light with its tail. This is actually the chemical reaction they produce and oxygen. Glowworms spend most of their lives as matchstick-sized larvae.

Cave habitat is perfect for glowworms because they usually live in dark and humid environments. Their yarn is never dry or damaged due to the high humidity in the cave. The river flowing under the thread is the main food supplier for glowworm.

Caves are always monitored to ensure sparkling creatures have everything they need for their survival. After all, they are the reason so many people visit Waitomo. Travelers who are interested in seeing it can take a tour by boat to enter the cave.
