Looks Like a Chemical Waste Spill, You’ll Be Amazed at What This Natural Glow Is…

If someone came to me and said this was what they saw on holiday, i’d never of believed it, but this amazing shore line is  Vaadhoo within the Maldives in India…

This  awesome site is a blue bed of Plankton…

What it leaves on shore…

Plankton consists of any drifting organisms of plant or animals, feeding large aquatic organisms, such as fish.

This glow is a chemical reaction, cutting a long story short…

 It is what happens when the plankton feels its in danger, as to shock the predator or draw attention to bigger predators which could eat the planktons predators, giving the plankton time to get away, how crazy is that…

As you can imagine as this is perfectly fine to have touch your skin, it is a must dive to any scuba diver or snorkeler, as many that have no interest in the sea would love to experience this, hence many Diving Operators take advantage of these bioluminescent phytoplankton seasons, when they know plankton will be brought in by ocean currents.
