Have you ever wondered how you look into your dog’s eyes? Or even how does a bee see the world? The sight of every type of animal on Earth is unique, and some can even see what we cannot. We decided to show how different animals see the world around them.
Dogs have poor eyesight; their eyes are not sensitive to most colors and they see the world in a somewhat diffuse way.
On the other hand, they look great at night. They have a well-developed sense of perspective and depth, and their eyes are more sensitive to movement.
Fish that live in ordinary tanks can see in ultraviolet and everything in their surroundings is magnified. This is probably why so many fish seem surprised all the time.
Our feathered friends have good eyesight. Night birds can see very well when there is no light and during the day they can see shades of color that humans cannot see, just like ultraviolet rays.
Snakes generally have poor eyesight, but they can see thermal radiation at night ten times better than any modern infrared technology.
During the day, however, they react only to movement: if their prey doesn’t move, they won’t catch it.
Mice and Rats
Each of a mouse’s eyes moves independently, so they see two separate images. The world for them is muddy, slow, and tinged with a greenish-blue color.
For roaming cows, their pastures are not green, but they look orange and red. But they see everything slightly enlarged.
