1. Most humans can see everything in the visible spectrum aka all the colors of the rainbow.
2. But some people are colorblind, and this is how some of them see the world:
3. Dogs can actually see color. The left image represents a human's vision while the right image is a dog's vision.
4. The fuzzier, less vibrant picture is what your cat sees:
5. Cats have better night vision than humans, even though they can't see reds.
6. Bulls are also dichromatic, which means they can't see red either.
7. Humans evolved the ability to see red to possibly help with foraging.
8. Bees can see UV light.
9. Birds, reptiles, and fish can also see UV light.
10. Dinosaurs were able to see UV light too.
11. But it's the mantis shrimp that sees color in a completely different way than any other living creature in the world.
12. And there's even one documented case of a human being who can allegedly see 100 million colors.
