The HomeAdvisor company came up with an interesting project: they created a virtual room in which there are 7 animals: a dog, a cat, an aquarium fish, a snake, a spider, a parrot and a chameleon. The authors show how these animals see the world around us. It turned out to be interesting and informative. Let's take a look.
This is how a person sees this room.
The dog sees a room in pastel colors.
This is due to the fact that there are cones in her eyes that are sensitive to blue and yellow, but there are no ones that should be sensitive to red.
Cats can see well in low light.
Their field of vision is wider than that of humans (200 degrees versus 180), but not as wide as that of dogs. The ability to distinguish colors is somewhere in the middle between canine and human: they distinguish blue, yellow and a little green.
Fish can see more colors than humans.
In addition, they have the ability to capture ultraviolet light. It helps their vision in the water. In addition, there is an effect in their vision, like in a fisheye lens. Actually, it's not for nothing that this effect got such a name.
Snakes don't see well in daylight.
And some species have infrared vision. Roughly speaking, the vision of snakes can be compared with a thermal imager.
Spiders have eight eyes, but at the same time they should wear glasses, since they have very strong myopia.
Therefore, their hairy paws help them navigate.
The parrot's eyes detect ultraviolet, blue, green and red color ranges, and the horizon is 300 degrees.
Also, a bird can focus on an object with one eye while the other wanders. And the parrot can also constrict the pupils at will.
Most of all, the choice of colors in your living room will excite the chameleon. After all, he not only sees colors, but also changes his coloring.
Chameleons see many colors, including the ultraviolet spectrum, but not so contrasting. The chameleon's field of view is 342 degrees.
