Can Your Pets See Colour?
Humans and their furry friend both have two kinds of receptors in their eyes: rods and cones. Rods handle peripheral and night vision – this means shades of grey and brightness. Cones are for colour and vision during the day. Each of the cones can detect a different wavelength of light. Your pets have a higher concentration of rod receptors and a lower concentration of cone receptors. Humans have the opposite, which why we can’t see as well at night but can see more varieties of colour.
