Firefly is a type of insect from the beetle family. The 'Pteroptye tener' species are the largest species found in Kampung Kuantan. The fireflies here are unique because of its tail that produces light. The light flash by each insect is at an accurate interval of 3 seconds. Imagine watching thousands of fireflies flashing their light at an accurate rhythm. The fireflies are 6 cm in length. The male fireflies flash out brighter lights than the female counterparts. This is because the male must attract the female fireflies during the mating season. The lifespan of firefly is about 2-3 months.
