Interesting facts: rectangular pupils

December 4th, 2012

Unlike most of animals, goats have rectangular pupils.
We are accustomed to see pupils in eyes as round objects, just as our pupils. It allows them to see more around themselves (320-340 degrees of vision, while humans have only 160-200 degrees).
Which also means, that they can see better at night. 🙂

There is also other species of animals with rectangular pupils. Maybe you know which one? 😉 Or, you can always have a guess 😉
