Can Dogs See Color?
It is commonly believed that dogs are color blind. In the 1990’s, a series of Popsicle ice cream commercials reaffirmed this belief in many young minds. The commercials ended with a dog saying “I’m color blind, kid,” as the camera shifted to the dog’s perspective, revealing a world in greyscale.
But are dogs really color blind? This quick video from SciShow explores this idea and gives us a more realistic look through the eyes of a dog, while explaining the science behind seeing colors.
