Did you know that the vision of dogs is not black and white as it is popularly believed?

One thing is certain; the vision of our furry friends is completely different from our humans and we have always heard this widespread idea that dogs see in black and white. But that's not true!!

This different vision of our is due to the cells of the retina called the cone and cane. The cones determine the chromatic vision, the detail of the vision, and the canes determine the poles of light intensity and motion detection. Dogs have a smaller number of cones and larger canes compared to humans so they have a much better night visual acuity, in capturing movements, etc. and not so much in the details or definition of colour, having a smaller but not zero colour palette!
