Did you know that long ago in ancient China, people sometimes captured fireflies in transparent containers and used them as short-term lanterns? If you're lucky enough to live in an area with these glowing insects, why not try to temporarily harness some of that bioluminescence for yourself in this specially designed lantern?

With a swiveling lid designed to be quickly opened and closed, this lightweight lantern can be used to catch, study and release all manner of insects, not just lightning bugs. The wire mesh ensures the insects get plenty of fresh air during their stay.
