How Animals see the World

frog-eyes

Here’s an interesting video from National Geographic about the types of eyes found in the animal world.  It’s impossible to know exactly how the world appears to animals with different types of eyes, but scientists do know the types of vision presented by different types of eyes.  The scientist speaking would most like to see through the eyes of a shrimp mantis.  Their eyes are multiple and see the same thing from different points of view!  That sounds pretty confusing to me!

Appropriate for grades 5+
