Q&A

how big does my creature's organ need to blind or stun predator of all size?

+0
−0

Ok so my creature will look like this

enter image description here

  • They're not big, about 2 feet tall.

  • They're technically amphibians but have the scaly hide of a reptile.

  • They live near the sea.

  • Their life cycle is similar to that of any amphibians.

  • They get their bioluminescent ability when they're a larva from fishes or any food source that contains bioluminescent material (eg. flashlight fish, firefly squid, etc.) and they collect this material in a special organ.

  • They can produce a light bright enough to temporarily dazzle a creature and can do this during the day or night.

I want my creature to have the ability detailed above and to be able to use it against attackers (of any size). How big does its light organ must be to produce that much light? and how many times can it do it?
