From LiveScience.com:
Biologists have discovered how this Hawaiian bobtail squid glows from its belly. Surprisingly, the two-inch-long animal acquires this ability by sequestering bacteria that produce the toxic molecule responsible for whooping cough and gonorrhea in humans.
The rest of the article is here . Not many details, but interesting anyway. Has a decent picture of the squid.
