Educational, inspirational, and fascinating, this documentary literally looks through the eyes of various animals that inhabit our planet. What Animals See investigates the way animals see, exploring why they have evolved to see the way that they see. Though it's a scientific exploration of the vision capacity of animals on Earth, there is a sense of excitement and wonder that is relayed in the telling (and showing).

Kids who have wondered what their own dog or cat can see will feel satisfied when watching the simulated video of their pets' vision. Curious adults will feel inspired by the complexity of life that exists both in the trees in the backyard and in the bottom of the ocean. Great educational content for home viewing.
