The wavy patterns are called “iridic granules” and they act as horizontal filters. These filters limit glare and reduce eye strain in bright light – Kind of like a built-in pair of sunglasses! These iridic granules also tighten and close over the pupil to limit the amount of light received while still focusing.
You guessed it this is close up of a Llama eye. Llamas, interestingly enough, have three eyelids.
You may notice the zig-zag markings on they eye, as well as the typically greenish-yellow coloring. These eyes have a layer called tapetum behind their retina, containing crystals that reflect light and make night vision possible.
These eyes belong to a Caiman. Did you know that the caiman eye at night not only produces an ‘eyeshine’ but it’s also iridescent, which means the color changes with the angle of the light source?
Looking into this pupil is like looking into a cracked frozen lake. This animal can also have dark blue, amber, or brown eyes as well.
The Siberian Husky originated in north-eastern Siberia, and this is why the species has such a thick coat of fur. Huskies were originally sent to Canada and Alaska as working dogs, however they soon began to be chosen as popular domestic pets because of their gentle, but resilient nature.
This eye looks very similar to our own, who could this be?
Chimpanzees certainly are clever, and they can even walk upright on two legs when carrying objects with their hands and arms. Chimpanzees have also learnt how to make tools and use them to collect food. The species use vocalizations, hand gestures, and even so much as a glimpse with those astonishing eyes of theirs can communicate a whole message to other members of their group.
These animals can grow up to around seven meters long! As you can see, their pupil has an unusual marbled pattern and is very circular in shape. Although their light coloring may seem like a disadvantage, it actually works well to help them fit into their natural jungle environment.
This eye belongs to this Albino Tiger Pyhon.
