Human eyes are pretty impressive, but let’s be honest, our ocular organs don’t hold a candle to the eyes of animals like owls, mantis shrimp, cats, eagles, dragonflies, octopuses, bees, parrots, goats, chameleons… Ok, maybe human eyes aren’t all that impressive after all.
Today K+K discuss:
- The anatomy of the eyeball
- Color and light wave perception (what is a color, really?)
- How to see with amazing precision at a distance, or at night (hint: become an owl)
- The amazing mantis shrimp (who may not actually be as amazing as you’ve been told, but then by the end you’ll think they’re amazing again)
