Vision is the most important thing for an organism to survive in the harsh environmental conditions, thankfully we humans have it as a by birth gift. There are also some organisms which don’t have a vision, but yes instead of vision, they have other sensory organs to survive. We very well know that we humans are not the only one with the best vision in the animal kingdom. There are also other animals who have much more advanced and enhanced vision as compared to us. So down below is a list of such animals with the best vision in the animal kingdom.
Each globular eye of a Dragonfly is made up of 30000 facets and placed in different directions which results in a vulnerable 360-degree vision. Apart from that, they can also detect UV and polarized light which are beyond our vision.
From around 1500 different species of geckos, most of the Geckos are nocturnal and like to live in a warm climate. To survive in such conditions they can see different colors even in low light with amazing quality from a vision which is 350 times more sensitive than of a human.
The Mantis Shrimp has the most incredible and best vision in the animal kingdom due to its amazing power of sensing more colors as compared to humans with twelve different color receptors where a human has only three receptors. Also, they can access infrared, U.V and polarized light while focusing in two different directions at the same time.
Cuttlefish is a beautiful and colorful sea organism which have the ability to change its color into almost any color and that too very instantly. And when it comes to their vision, they have a strange ‘w’ shaped pupils which give them a wider range of vision. The can even see what's happening behind them and can detect the polarized light, even the slightest variation in the angle of polarized light.
Hammerhead sharks have the best vision as compared to other species of sharks. A flattened hammer-shaped head with widely set eyes gives them perfect vision and exceptional depth perception like humans.
Owls have an incredible binocular vision or ability to see an object with both eyes with great depth perception as compared to other animals or birds with eyes on the sides of its head. Although the cant move their eyes because of tubular shape, but they move their head in 270 degrees in both left and right direction. And as we all know Owls have an excellent night vision contributed by millions of light-sensitive retinal rods.
This vulnerable creature is very well known for its color changing ability. Apart from that, Chameleons also have the best vision in the animal kingdom which is an excellent 360-degree vision. They can also move their eyes independently in two different directions, where they can focus on two different objects at the same time even if the object is at high speeds.
