Animals with night vision

Nocturnal animals have special abilities that help them survive and flourish in the dark. One of these abilities is night vision. This NatGeoWILD video introduces us to a handful of animals with eyesight that’s specially adapted for dim and dark light.

Tarsiers are primates with enormous eyes that take in more light, allowing them to see at night. Like the owl, their eyes are fixed, so they twist their heads around to observe their surroundings.

Cuttlefish, crocodiles, and cats all have pupils with shapes that help them see the world. The tapetum lucidum, a retroreflective layer in the eye, can also help some animals see.
