As you may know, New Zealand is a country that suitable for driving a great trip. From Rotorua, I have to visit Waitomo Caves, it located at the south of Waikato city.

Words Waitomo come from the native language two words are “wai” means “water” and the word “tomo” means “cave” when used together, so mean. Water flowing through caves. Cave is expected at least two million years.

Hunting victims of grow worms, they have a blue light on their backside caused by a chemical reaction. They use it as a lure to attract insects. they will release fibers like silk. When the victim will fall into trap Fiber, it will act like a hook to hang it out.
