Just like humans, other animals also have eyes that are mostly intriguing and interesting. Take this quiz to discover more about animals and their respective eyes.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Which of these animals has the sharpest eyesight?

    • A. 

      Eagle

    • B. 

      Owls

    • C. 

      Parrot

    • D. 

      Crow

    Correct Answer
    A. Eagle
    Explanation
    The eagle has the sharpest eyesight among these animals. Eagles have large eyes with a high density of light-sensitive cells, allowing them to see small details from far distances. Their eyes are also equipped with a second fovea, which enhances their ability to focus and perceive depth. This exceptional eyesight helps eagles spot prey from great heights and hunt with precision. Owls also have excellent vision, but their eyes are adapted for low-light conditions rather than sharpness. Parrots and crows have good eyesight but not as sharp as that of an eagle.

    Which of these birds has the best night vision? 

    • A. 

      Hawk

    • B. 

      Eagle

    • C. 

      Owl

    • D. 

      Parrot

    Correct Answer
    C. Owl
    Explanation
    Owls have the best night vision among these birds. This is because they have large eyes that are adapted to gather as much light as possible in low-light conditions. Additionally, their eyes are filled with a high density of rod cells, which are responsible for detecting light and motion. These adaptations allow owls to see in the dark and hunt effectively at night.

    The best underwater vision animal is... 

    • A. 

      Dolphin

    • B. 

      Whale

    • C. 

      Shark

    • D. 

      Stone fish

    Correct Answer
    C. Shark
    Explanation
    Sharks have the best underwater vision among the given options. They have a specialized structure called the tapetum lucidum, which enhances their vision in low-light conditions. This allows them to see clearly in the deep ocean where sunlight is limited. Additionally, sharks have excellent visual acuity and can detect even the smallest movements or changes in their surroundings. Their vision is crucial for hunting and navigating through their environment effectively.

    Which type of animals has the best thermal vision? 

    • A. 

      Birds

    • B. 

      Snakes

    • C. 

      Cats

    • D. 

      Fishes

    Correct Answer
    B. Snakes
    Explanation
    Snakes have the best thermal vision among the given options. Snakes possess specialized organs called pit organs, located on their heads, which allow them to detect infrared radiation. These organs help snakes detect the heat signatures of their prey, even in complete darkness. This thermal vision gives snakes a significant advantage when hunting, as they can locate their prey based on their body heat.

    Which of these animals has the best mammal night vision? 

    • A. 

      Dogs

    • B. 

      Cats

    • C. 

      Rodents

    • D. 

      Apes

    Correct Answer
    B. Cats
    Explanation
    Cats have the best mammal night vision compared to dogs, rodents, and apes. Cats have a layer of cells called the tapetum lucidum behind their retinas, which reflects light back through the retina, enhancing their ability to see in low light conditions. This adaptation allows cats to have superior night vision compared to other animals listed.

    Which of these types of animal has the best motion detectors? 

    • A. 

      Cats

    • B. 

      Snakes

    • C. 

      Birds

    • D. 

      Insects

    Correct Answer
    D. Insects
    Explanation
    Insects have the best motion detectors among these types of animals. Insects possess specialized sensory organs called antennae that are highly sensitive to detecting even the slightest movements in their surroundings. These antennae are equipped with tiny hairs or sensors that can detect changes in air currents caused by the movement of nearby objects. This allows insects to quickly react and respond to potential threats or prey, making them highly efficient at detecting motion. Cats, snakes, and birds also have good motion detection abilities, but insects have evolved to have the most advanced and sensitive motion detectors.

    Which of these animals has the best all-round view? 

    • A. 

      Lion

    • B. 

      Tiger

    • C. 

      Horse

    • D. 

      Cheetah

    Correct Answer
    C. Horse
    Explanation
    Horses have the best all-round view among these animals because they have eyes positioned on the sides of their head, giving them a wide field of vision. This allows them to see predators approaching from different directions and helps them to be aware of their surroundings. Lions, tigers, and cheetahs have eyes positioned more towards the front of their head, which gives them better depth perception for hunting but limits their peripheral vision.

    Which of these animals has the largest eyes relative to its total body size? 

    • A. 

      Eagle

    • B.

      Owl

    • D. 

      Crow

    Correct Answer
    C. Owl
    Explanation
    Owls have the largest eyes relative to their total body size among the given options. Owls have large eyes in order to have better vision in low-light conditions, as they are nocturnal hunters. The size of their eyes allows them to gather more light, enhancing their ability to see in the dark. This gives them an advantage when hunting for prey at night.

    • C. 

      Eagle

    • D. 

      Lizard

    Correct Answer
    A. Chameleon
    Explanation
    Chameleons have the unique ability to move their eyes independently of each other, allowing them to look at two different things simultaneously. This is known as "independent eye movement" or "panoramic vision." This adaptation helps them to locate prey, predators, and potential mates in their environment.

      Sea wasp

    • D. 

      Mauve stinger

    Correct Answer
    A. Box jellyfish
    Explanation
    The box jellyfish is the correct answer because it is known to have 24 eyes. These eyes are located on their bell-shaped body and are grouped into four clusters, with each cluster containing six eyes. These eyes allow the box jellyfish to detect light and dark, as well as the movement of nearby objects, helping them navigate and find prey in their environment.
