Wild Fact of the Month


"Wild Fact of the Month" is a monthly feature in our e-mail newsletter where we extract interesting facts and bits of information from one of our many books to share with you. A sneak peek if you will. 

Why do the eyes of animals shine at night?


This crazy phenomenon is caused by a reflective layer at the back of the eye. This layer helps to improve the vision of these animals at night. The phenomenon occurs mostly in nocturnal species where acute sight in low light is a prerequisite for survival.

The reflective layer is made up of reflective cellular crystals called the tapetum lucidum. Light passing through the cells of the retina hits this layer and is reflected back through the cells, giving the brain two chances, as it were, to sample and refine the image.

This reflected light is what we interpret as the shining of the animal's eyes.
