Glow Worms

19 February 2011

Today I headed out to see the Glow Worms at Mt Tamborine with my girly group.

The glow worm caves are in Cedar Creek and were artificially made in 2004

Cave construction took fourteen months finishing in mid 2004. We introduced our first 100 glow-worms,Arachnocampa flava, into the cave in February 2005. Once this colony established we opened our doors to the public on the 1st March, 2006.

Did you know after glow worms hatch from their cocoon things they don't have any mouths, therefore as an adult form they don't live for very long.

Some fun pictures

After the caves we decided to head a bit more into town to have some lunch and go cheese, beer, wine, chocolate and liquor tasting.

How big is this chip!!

I wish I was a glow worm,
A glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!
