It might sound incredible, but even mainstream science recognizes cats, dogs, and other mammals can see frequencies humans cannot.


According to scientists, cats and dogs can see UV light and some other rays, which human retinas can't see.


It was previously thought that all mammals had similar eyes to us humans, incapable of seeing UV rays. However, scientific evidence suggests the opposite.


A study conducted several years ago by biologists at City University London in the UK provided evidence for this differential between species regarding their sight.


According to Pet MD:


“Have you ever felt that your cat or dog can see something you don’t? Well, you may be right, according to a new study. Cats, dogs, and other mammals are thought to see in ultraviolet light, which opens up a whole different world than the one we see, the study explains.

UV light is the wave length beyond the visible light from red to violet that humans can see. Humans have a lens that blocks UV from reaching the retina. It was previously thought that most mammals have lenses similar to humans.

Scientists studied the lenses of dead mammals, including cats, dogs, monkeys, pandas, hedgehogs, and ferrets. By researching how much light passes through the lens to reach the retina, they concluded that some mammals previously thought not to be able to see UV actually can.”

Do you feel like there are other entities exist around us, just as ultraviolet rays and only certain animals are, maybe even only sometimes, aware of them? Share your thoughts below!
