Most Stunning Animal Eyes

Have you ever been mesmerized by eyes before? Well prepare for more because here is a list of creatures that perhaps has the most amazing eyes in the whole animal kingdom. I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Owls

Did you know owls’ eyes are fixed in their sockets? Which means their eye movements within their sockets are very limited – so instead they turn their entire head to see in different directions. They have forward-facing eyes which gives them well-developed binocular vision.

Cuttlefish

Well okay these pairs of eyes are quite different…

What? Where’s the eye? Look closely, yep that’s right. That squiggly “W” shaped line is it! Despite its utter strangeness, their eyes is one of the most developed in the animal kingdom as we know it. (Did I mention they have green blood?).

Finally in first place we have…

Frogs and Toads

Okay, so they’re different species so its actually it’s a tie, but take a look at their eyes! They are known to have irises that come in many colors – green, brown, red, bronze, silver and gold! They also have been seen to have different shapes as well. Including round pupils, horizontal-shaped pupils (that are more for day vision), vertical pupils (that looks like a line, which are great for night vision) , heart shape pupils (aww), triangular pupils and even star-shaped ones! Check them out!
