There are about 10,000 species of click beetle. These long beetles are able to jump into the air to right themselves or escape predators. The parts that let these beetles jump make a clicking noise, which gives them their name. The Jamaican click beetle glows brightly. Their glow varies from orange to yellow-green to green, depending on the beetle.
