    GLOBAL - Cuttlefish have the most acute polarisation vision yet found in any animal, researchers at the University of Bristol have discovered by showing them movies on a modified LCD computer screen to test their eyesight.

    Cuttlefish
    are among the most remarkable of cephalopods, but nobody expected the creatures to have this particular trick up their sleeve. Cuttlefish can actually see information in the angle of intense polarized light that we can barely comprehend.

    Long ago I asked if polarized vision could be the answer to color matching ability. The thought at the time was that there was no relationship of color (seen through rods and cones) and polarization. Now it looks like there might be more of a relationship than was thought :thumbsup:
