The Anatomy and Physiology of Feline Eyes
By Michael Rogers
Vision is a crucial part of a feline's lifestyle, from hunting prey to protection from predators. What is interesting to note is that there are some felines that are nocturnal, such as the average house cat, whereas some felines are diurnal (the wildcat). These differences in lifestyles and hunting habits are not simply by choice. There are important anatomical and physiological aspects of feline eyes which predetermines whether a feline will hunt during the day, or at night. This website will go into some detail about what these differences are that make felines so unique. So start clicking the links above to start your journey into feline vision!
