Sight

Townsville Bulletin - - NQ Life -

Do pets re­ally pre­fer brightly coloured toys? Pets see lim­ited colours com­pared to hu­mans. Dogs are thought to dis­tin­guish blue from yel­low, but do not dif­fer­en­ti­ate be­tween red, orange and green. Cats can see blue and green, but not red. Pets’ eye­sight ex­cels in dim light and in sens­ing tiny move­ments. Cats’ large eyes re­quire only one-sixth of the light that hu­mans need to see. Dogs and cats also have a re­flec­tive lin­ing at the back of the eye.
