  • The bald eagle sees four to five times better than humans; in fact, it can see small prey as far as 2 miles away.
  • Bees can see ultraviolet bull's-eye patterns on flower petals, directing them to specific flowers.
  • Peacock mantis shrimp are said to have the best vision in the world Their compound eyes rotate independently in all directions on the end of stalks Their eyes are unlike any other animal's: they can detect ultraviolet light, infrared light and have 16 photoreceptors They can also see polarized light.
