Insect of the Day: Freaky, Carnivorous Glow Worm Discovered in Peru

Nature photographer Jeff Cremer was working in the jungles of Tambopata, Peru a few years ago, when he uncovered several dozen worms in the soil glowing a strange green color.

Local entomologists had never seen anything like it before in the region but came to the conclusion that the animal is possibly the larvae of an unknown species of click beetle. He initially posted pictures of his findings on Reddit to help solve the mystery.

The .5-inch long worms have since been determined to be carnivorous as well, and use the glowing light to attract their prey into their terrifying jaws before chowing down.

Entomologist Aaron Pomerantz recently took a trip down to Peru with Cremer to investigate further, which you can watch in the video above.

Inside Look of the Day: Behind the Bars at the Gay Wing of a Prison

Did you ever wonder what it's like inside a gay wing of a men's prison? Did you even know that there was a gay wing?

"LA Weekly" got an inside look at one such place at the L.A. County Sheriff's Men's Central Jail dubbed "K6G," the only of its kind in any major U.S. city.

"You're allowed to be with whomever you want to, talk to whomever you want and do whatever you want to, basically, as long as you do it in a respectable way," said one of the inmates.

It was established as a result of a 1985 ACLU lawsuit to protect gay prisoners from the threat of violence.

According to the article, the inmates have created a peaceful community (with a few exceptions) in K6G, so much so that even the straight inmates try to get in - if the "classification officer" thinks they are suitable.

To mark the release of "Far Cry 4", Ubisoft asked British inventor Colin Furze to build a weaponized, motorized rickshaw, or what is also known as a Tuk-Tuk.

After installing a Honda CBR600 engine to a rickshaw he bought off eBay, Furze added some AK-47s on the side, a set of uzis that pop out of the front and a flamethrower on the back, among other modifications.

You can check out some of his other inventions on his site, including an ice bike, a fireworks safety suit and automated Wolverine claws.
