This is how your dog’s vision is different from yours

In this photo taken on Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016, stray puppies sit in their basket at a dog shelter in Targu Frumos, a small town in the north east of Romania. There are hundreds of thousands of stray dogs in Romania, who are often abandoned and left to die in such shelters or on the streets. (AP Photo/Liliana Ciobanu)

Your four-legged best friend sees the world a lot differently than you do.

Dogs have rods and cones in their eyes, just like you. Cones help distinguish colors, and rods allow us to see in low light.

However, dogs have fewer cone receptors than humans. That means they can’t see as many colors as we can; when it comes to color, they likely see the way humans do at dusk.

Dogs’ eyes also have more rods than humans’, which gives them better night vision. (Have you ever noticed how a dog’s eyes seem to glow in the dark?)
