THEY SEE BETTER THAN TODAY’S OWLS
The researchers then looked at the scleral ring, a set of bones surrounding each species’ pupil, to assess the animal’s vision. The wider the pupil can be opened, the more light gets in and the clearer the night vision. After the work done, it was seen that Shuvuuia had excellent night vision.
Dr. Neenan said, “Shuvuuia had both exceptional hearing and night vision compared to today’s owls. It’s hard to say which is better, but our analysis seems to show that Shuvuuia may have slightly better night vision than barn owls, ”he said.
