The forest floor is barely visible in the low light conditions when it suddenly bursts into life, becoming a neon green blanket of light.
The source of this eerie light is a bioluminescent fungus, known only by the name given to it by locals: "chimpanzee fire".
Filmmaker Verity White was able to catch this phenomenon on camera for the Congo episode of the BBC/Discovery series Africa using long-exposure time-lapse photography techniques.
