DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that owls don’t have eyeballs? Despite having one of the most powerful eyes in the animal kingdom, owls don’t have eyeballs to help them see. Owl’s eyes are tube-shaped. They are rigidly in place by bones called sclerotic rings while a human eye socket with spherical eyes does not have sclerotic rings. 3 percent of an owl’s entire body weight is from its eyes while a human’s eye is accountable for only .0003 percent of body weight. Despite having very large eyes, owls are actually farsighted. According to National Geographic, the owl's whisker-like bristles around their beaks help them detect close objects because they can’t focus on objects that are too close.
Most owls are most active at night and have eyeshine that dramatically increases the available light on the owl’s photoreceptors giving it superior night vision. Aside from night vision, owls also have a binocular vision or the ability of a two-eyed animal to see an object with both eyes simultaneously. Unlike owls, human beings are heavily dependent on technology to be able to see in the dark. Night vision apps are essential for outdoor survival in the dark. In fact, a lot of night vision cameras have been developed to simulate the owl’s ability to see very well, even in the absence of light. Speaking of simulation, the nude app is now a thing. Well, technically, it's not as explicit as you would think. Mostly for pulling pranks on friends, it works by simulating the infrared lights, passing through clothes, and displaying the 'naked' version of a photo!
