In what's turning out to be a rather shocking revelation, researchers have learned that the majority of animals can see pulses of UV light produced by power lines. Because these flashes are often frightening, they may be having a detrimental affect on wildlife around the globe.
A new study suggests dogs and cats can see things that are invisible to humans — from psychedelic stripes on flowers to flashy patterned feathers on birds. Scientists say the secret behind this remarkable "superpower" is ultraviolet light detection.
Cats and humans have very different perspectives on the world, both literally and figuratively. Indeed, as these visualizations beautifully illustrate, cats use their highly specialized eyes to see the world in a way that's far removed from what we experience.
