We have to confess to being fascinated by science, and especially that part which deals with the biology of species. Which makes this How Animals See The World article really interesting. Of course it’s all a total fantasy, rather like an alien trying to work out how we humans see by counting the megapixels on our cameras, but it’s still a valid piece of guesswork even so.

But what we’re likely to never know is how their brain processes the information they take in, which is where the real excitement lies.
