Wow Laura, I didn't know that, thank you for sharing that information! Panoramic vision could be really cool.

Lovely photo! Lovely portrait of a bighorn sheep. I agree with Carolina, the pupil shape is cool :) They're like that so they can get greater resolution in their peripheral vision, so they can basically see in panoramic vision! Their eyes also rotate when they graze, so the pupil is always level with the horizon. The diversity of life is wonderful!
