Creatures of Light app
From The Mac Observer:
Coming in at a whopping 484 MB(!), American Museum of Natural History's Creatures of Light is well worth the download wait and the iPad space it'll occupy.
Here's an app chock full of photos, videos, and articles about plants and animals that produce their own light.
Most folks are at least vaguely familiar with fireflies and their summer evening light shows. What you may not realize is how many other creatures have a similar ability to shine, from tiny organisms that cause waves to glow with each crash, to glowing mushrooms, to deep sea fish that use light to "fish" for dinner.
It's a fascinating subject and a very enjoyable read. Endure the download and enjoy.
Free, the way we like it.
Fair warning: There goes the day.
