Waitomo caves of New Zealand

Waitomo caves of New Zealand

Located within the world renowned Waitomo caves of New Zealand, hundreds of thousands of glow worms light up the dark, producing an eery kingdom comprised of bio-luminescent larvae (commonly known as Arachnocampa luminosa). These tiny creatures, which are equivalent in size to an average mosquito, are indigenous (and exclusive) to New Zealand, making the caves a popular tourist destination. You can even take a guided tour!
