Biofluorescence in East African springhare museum specimens. A male Pedetes surdaster museum specimen (FMNH 73067) collected from the Central Province of Kenya in 1952, photographed under visible light (first and third image from left) and 395 nm ultraviolet light using a 470 nm longpass filter. Orange to red biofluorescence (~ 650 nm) is observed on the dorsal (leftmost images) and ventral surfaces (rightmost images) of this museum specimen from the Field Museum of Natural History (FMNH) in Chicago, Illinois, USA.
