Description

When the disco clam, a bivalve with a flashing light display, is faced with the predatory power of the punching mantis shrimp, things get interesting. Marine biologist Lindsey Dougherty explains the bizarre behavior shes been observing in her lab.

CORRECTION: 3:31-3:41 the animals shown when Dr. Dougherty was talking about bioluminescence were not exhibiting the characteristic. WIRED regrets the error.
