Do lions see colour? Yes they do. Lions have fewer cones so see less colour but have great night vision especially since their eyes also have a membrane that concentrates weak light back to the retina and their pupils are able to enlarge to an extent much bigger than ours.
Lion’s eyes are quite large with round pupils that are three times as big as a human’s. This makes a lion’s eyesight eight times better than that of a human. They also have a white patch of furbelow their eyes which helps to reflect even more light back into the eye.
the mantis shrimpFinally, we come to the king of the color-seeing kingdom: the mantis shrimp. As compared to humans’ measly three color-receptive cones, the mantis shrimp has 16 color-receptive cones, can detect ten times more color than a human, and probably sees more colors than any other animal on the planet.
Lions are unable to see the red color. Colors that are close to red, or made with a combination of the red color. For example, the orange color a lion sees like yellow. While purple for a lion appears in blue color.
As we mentioned earlier, lions can see colors that are created by two basic colors. Those colors are blue and green. So, from a lion’s perspective, they see the world predominantly blue, green, and yellow, while other colors appear similar to those two but in the grayish-shaded versions.
