Ian's Daily Outdoor Fun Fact – Animal Eyes

Hey AndyCamper Gang, Did you know?

Where an animal’s eyes are placed on its head can tell you whether an animal is a predator (“hunter”) or prey (ones that are hunted). For example, owls have eyes on the front of their face like humans. This is important because it helps them judge distance and catch their prey more easily. On the other hand, prey animals like rabbits often have eyes on the sides of their heads, which allows them to see behind and in front at the same time which makes it harder for a predator to sneak up and grab them.

Check out some of the birds and animals in your yard. Where are their eyes? Do you think they’re hunters or victims?

Keep trekking!
