The eyes of squid perform different functions.
Scientists found out why the squid is such an “evil” eye.
This was reported in the Philosophical Transactions.
The residents of the water Kingdom such colouring and large eyes in order to observe the “normal” light and glow of bioluminescent creatures from the deep.
The eyes of the squid are arranged so that they are able to only see the bioluminescent light sources. That is, they can not see silhouettes of both predators and victims. Say, on the size of the calamari has decreased in the course of evolution. This process not only touched the eyes, they remained large.
Scientists have discovered that very deep at the bottom can live squid long 30 m. One of the “devilish” traits of mollusks is that they have very dissimilar eyes: one eye they is usually exaggerated, and the second is rudimentary in nature and often painted in a different color.
