Pyrotechnics of mating light a female, seen in her burrow in side a glass-walled box (left). A mature male, glowing faintly below, fertilizes her; he will die within a few days. The female's body bends double so that her red headlights show beside her abdomen. Two weeks later she will begin to lay a cluster of about three dozen eggs. Mound of eggs-only half the creature's ultimate output dwarfs an adult female, whose body curls like a protective nest around the clutch.
