In this impressive infographic you can see most of our planet glowing creatures. They are able to produce and emit light on their own, they are bioluminescent.

The infographic design project with the collection of these glowing creatures, is made by Seattle-based biologist, artist Eleanor Lutz.

Eleanor explains on her website:

“I’ve always been into biology and design, so I’m taking a year off after college to see if I can combine the two with at least marginal success.

It’s more of an experiment than anything else, so feel free to leave comments about what works, what doesn’t, and what might be scientifically incorrect despite my best efforts. I spend a lot of time trying to make these infographics accurate (for this post I read a 468 page textbook and used over 200 other sources) but naturally I’m not an expert in every subject I write about.”
