The exact opposite of most humans, who tend to see things only in black and white.

Or in red, yellow, and brown.

I bought 2 hats at target - 1 black the other animal print. My dog ignored the black one but was all over the animal print one, biting & such. Very strange.

If I went to Busch Gardens in Tampa, wearing a T shirt with a large imprint of a lion on it, entered the 'plains' where the impala and gazelle are grazing, they would run for the fences in fear? I'm finding this hard to believe.

Exactly and I've been there a few times.

Depends on the species. For instance, predators see red.

We went to the zoo straight from church one day and I was wearing an animal print. I got some interesting looks from some of the animals. They looked like they wanted to take me on. It was an interesting zoo trip.

Are we really supposed to believe that this "park" is so close to the natural environment of the animals that they are not the slightest bit disturbed about living there?

If a giraffe has not seen a leopard stalking and killing, why would it freak out because some two-legged git in a truck has a leopard-print blouse on. Is she wearing leopard scent cologne just to confuse the animals too?

Sounds like a giganto load of poop to me.

I probably should have been more specific here...as in mammals not seeing color. I know birds and fish seem to have the good color vision. Seems mammals might rely more on smell or movement.
