Small animals that fly and pulled out a flickering light that we often encounter in certain areas at night is a beetle called firefly.

How does a firefly have a lamp and produce electrical energy?
Light is produced in special organs called photophores located in the lower abdomen. They consist of several layers of small reflector cells and a layer of light-producing cells. Light-producing cells contain nerves, air tubes, and two types of chemicals, luciferin and luciferase enzyme. When luciferin is activated by adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and luciferase, combine with oxygen in the air tube; this reaction produces energy in the form of light, heatless greenish-yellow-orange-red.
source firefly
From these research that fireflies do not have lights and electricity in his body, they have the light generated from the chemical luciferin and luciferase enzyme.
The fireflies are still widely available in rural areas or areas that are still there are many plants and trees. Their light functioned fatherly attract their mates.
