Interesting Facts About Cat Eyes
Cats have special eyes that are different from humans.
Cat eyes have an improved ability to see in dark conditions.
Cats can see using roughly one-sixth the amount of light that people need to see the same subject matter!
This doesn’t mean that they can see in total darkness. They still need some light in order to see.
The elongated pupils of a cat’s eye are positioned vertically in their eyeball. It is now believed that this slit-like pupil enables rapid changes in the pupil size allowing a cat to adapt to light changes very quickly.
It is believed that this is important for hunting but what’s interesting is large, wild cats such as lions and tigers do not have pupils shaped like this at all, but have rounded pupils like humans have.
