This beetle's fabulous antennae look like more like antlers

A cool clip shows an adult male glowworm beetle cleaning its amazing antennae.

The males use the feathery appendages to detect pheromones released by female beetles and then track them down.

Glowworm larvae live on the ground and are bioluminescent.

Some species, known as railroad worms, are unique in that their bioluminescence is red or orange instead of blue or green.

The cool clip was filmed in Short Hills Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada on June 4 2021.
