An international team of researchers led by the University of Georgia has documented ultraviolet biofluorescence in live southeastern pocket gophers (Geomys pinetis) and in museum specimens of four additional gopher species.

“Ultraviolet (UV) biofluorescence has been extensively documented in plants, invertebrates, and vertebrates,” said lead author Dr. J.T. Pynne from the D. B. Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at the University of Georgia and colleagues.

“Among vertebrates, biofluorescence is widespread in fish, amphibians, and birds. However, documented occurrences of biofluorescence are limited in reptiles and mammals.”

How Does Bioluminescence Work?

Nearly all life on Earth is ultimately powered by light. But many creatures have learned how to make their own.
