Fireflies: Fireflies or lightning bugs make light within their bodies. This process is called bioluminescence and is shared by many other organisms, mostly sea-living or marine organisms. Fireflies light up to attract a mate. To do this, the fireflies contain specialized cells in their abdomen that make light.
.
Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the
village of Peth is situated at its base. The pinnacle of the Peth can
be seen from the village. It looks like a filed surface. On reaching
the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. The first one
is the cave of Goddess, besides which is a water cistern and the last
one is the specious Bhairoba cave. A flat floor and well-sculpted
pillars are specialty of the cave. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are
carved leading the pinnacle. Four–Five potholes and some cannon balls
are scattered in the fort.
