Summary
  • "This book shares the latest scientific research on animal vision. Discover pigeons' sunglasses, owls' tube-shaped eyes, insects with thousands of mini eyes, and much, much more. With delightful and surprising illustrations, this book allows us a rare glimpse of the world through animals' eyes. Learn interesting facts such as: cows spot predators coming up from behind, cats see mice scurrying through the night, snakes see infrared-- which we only feel as heat, and eagles see eight times more detail than we can." --
