According to articles i read, all natural. They apparently are luminescent 24/7, but the human eye can only pickthe luminescence during near dark conditions.

I saw that rabies sign and couldn't stop laughing. His face!!! He's kinda cute....even though he's rabid and he's carrying one of the deadliest diseases on the planet...

Agreed! They are cute, but they can be nasty. I ended up almost face to face with a 25lb'er years ago while on a ladder and it was dark. Don't mind saying i was scared $hitless!! Of course, i was there to exterminate them, maybe they knew........lol
