Two scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have pulled back the curtain on a little-known sea snail that generates its own light to ward off predators.

Looking like something straight out of James Cameron’s alien world of Pandora, these creatures are unique in that they use their shells to scatter and spread bright green bioluminescent light in all directions. “It’s rare for any bottom-dwelling snails to produce bioluminescence,” said on scientist. “So its even more amazing that this snail has a shell that maximizes the signal so efficiently.”

Next up, scientists hope to discovery how the snail disperses its light so efficiently and apply it to the optics industry. Check out the full article here.
