What can they see?

Postby cassiethenaturalist » Sun Sep 03, 2017 11:09 am

Hi all,

I work for a nature center and we purchased two flying squirrels last year. I just recently became their main caregiver and so I'm making sure I have all the correct facts. Most of the stuff I have been able to learn from books and online resources, but one of the things I cannot find is if they see in color.

Do they see in color, grayscale, only certain colors, etc.?

If you have references, that would be great!! Thanks in advance!

I've not seen any research on their ability to see or not see colors. They have excellent vision, but don't know about seeing colors or not.

Thanks Joan! I'll keep an eye out, but will just tell the people that there hasn't been any studies on that aspect of their lives :D
