Hoshiboshi crickets are a type of animal in the manga Children of the Whales. The crickets form enormous colonies and live off of the waste from the Mud Whale. Every few years, the crickets make a mass migration, and signal the beginning of their migration by glowing. The inhabitants of the Mud Whale refer to their migration as "The Great Flying" and look forward to it as entertainment.
