The Eyes Have It

Introduction

Animals depend on their senses to survive in the world that surrounds them. Through adaptation, animals develop senses suited to their enviroment and needs. A bald eagle, which flies through the air and needs to see its prey from great heights , sees the world in a very different way from a sea lion, which swims through the water where light is scattered and often dim.

These local animals may give you insights into the different ways animals see the world around them.
