10. Glowworms Cave on the North Island of New Zealand
Waitomo Glowworm Caves is located on the North Island of New Zealand. The glowwoms Arachnocampa luminosa are found exclusively in New Zealand. The caves began to form when earth movement caused the hard limestone to bend and buckle under the ocean and rise above the sea floor. As the rock was exposed to air, it separated and created cracks that allowed for water to flow through them. The walls are covered with these glowworms and a guide can get you trough the cave.
