Human eyes aren’t particularly good at distinguishing colors or seeing in dim light compared to other animals', EarthSky reports.
But when it comes to clarity of vision, humans can see fine details that most animals can’t.
A new study of animal vision compared hundreds of species by the sharpness of their sight. In a paper just published in the journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution, researchers compared visual acuity for roughly 600 species of insects, birds, mammals, fish and other animals.
Eleanor Caves, a postdoctoral researcher at Duke University, said that across the animal kingdom, most species see much less detail than humans do.
There are exceptions: the wedge-tailed eagle of Australia can see more than twice the detail of human eyes. Eagles can spot a rabbit while flying thousands of feet above the ground.
But apart from some eagles, vultures and falcons, most birds see less than half as much detail as humans.
