The firefly squid because of tiny photophores in their bodies, they are causing this beautiful bioluminescent phenomenon in Toyama Bay, Japan.

Tiny photophores can be found by thousands in the squid’s body, creating the ability to emit light.

The firefly squid normally are living at 1200 feet underwater, but waves in the Toyama bay pushes them to the surface, from March to June.
