About Fireflies: -

Fireflies belong to the family of beetles, and not flies as they are commonly mistaken for. These nocturnal winged beetles use bioluminescence, a chemical reaction when oxygen combines with luciferin, which is present in the lower abdomen of the insect to produce light.

All fireflies glow as larvae. Bioluminescence serves a different function in the larvae than in adults. It appears to be a warning signal to predators, for, the larvae contain chemicals that are either

distasteful or toxic.

About Kothaligad

Kothaligad is a Fort with a height of 3100 ft above sea LEVEL. It is also known as the Fort of Peth because of its vicinity to Peth village at its base. There are a small temple and large cave at the base and a chimney like a tunnel to the top of the fort. This pinnacle is carved from inside forming a staircase reaching the top.
