8. JUMPING SPIDERS HAVE BETTER VISION THAN HUMANS
Despite having up to eight eyes, most spiders have poor vision and can merely detect the difference between light and dark, forcing them to rely primarily on their senses of touch and taste. At best, some spiders can make out shapes in the form of a low-resolution image of what they’re looking at.
7. SOME SNAKES HAVE INFRARED VISION
In most cases, snakes can only see combinations of two colors – usually green and blue. Some nocturnal species, however, can see ultraviolet light. Snakes that hunt during the day have eyes that filter blue and ultraviolet light out – almost like a pair of built-in sunglasses, which is also why these species often have yellow eyes. Snake vision is also thought to be blurry, with the exception of certain species, such as the cobra.
6. BOX JELLYFISH CAN SEE PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING
Most jellyfish have poor vision based on light-sensitive cells that basically tell them their position relative to the sky – in other words, they can see well enough to know the difference between up and down. The brainless box jellyfish is unique compared to most other species, with 24 eyes that serve four distinct purposes and essentially give it a 360 degree view of its surroundings.
5. MIGRATORY BIRDS SEE EARTH’S MAGNETIC FIELDS
People have three types of cone cells that enable us to see various shades of red, green, and blue. In addition to these three types of cone cells, many birds possess a fourth type of cone cell that can detect ultraviolet light. Thanks to these ultraviolet cone cells, birds can see up to 99 million more colors than humans.
4. BATS AND DOLPHINS SEE SOUND
Many people believe that bats are blind, you know “blind as a bat!”, but this is actually a myth. In fact, bats see quite well. Some may even have better vision than humans in certain low-light conditions, including at dawn and dusk. This is thanks to a trait known as echolocation, which can be described in its simplest terms as the ability to “see” sound. Dolphins also have and use it.
3. THEIR PERCEPTION OF TIME IS NOTHING LIKE OURS
Humans have lifestyles of varying paces. Chances are, you’ve heard of a “New York Minute” or its leisurely opposite, known as “island time.” For animals, it’s even more complicated than we know, and it depends mostly on the speed at which they process memory input.
2. DONKEYS & HORSES HAVE NEARLY 360-DEGREE VISION
Animals that stalk their prey and suddenly attack at short range, known as ‘ambush predators,’ usually have vertical slit pupils, which help gauge distance with minimal head movement. On the other hand, grazing animals such as donkeys, horses, sheep, and goats typically have horizontal slit pupils, which absorb light from a wider field of vision, enabling a 350-degree range of sight, or nearly all the way around.
1. SHARKS HAVE SURPRISINGLY GOOD VISION
Because sharks have some impressively advanced senses, researchers assumed for a long time that their vision was poor. Sharks have some amazing capabilities, including the ability to detect a single drop of blood among millions of gallons of water. They can also hear very low-frequency, or infrasonic, sounds, which helps them detect wounded fish, for example.
