The Mantis Shrimp has the most sophisticated visual system in the world, as its eyes contain 16 different types of photo-receptors (12 for color analysis, compared to humanity’s 3 cones). Mantis shrimps can thus see polarized light and 4 colors of UV light, and distinguish up to 100,000 colors (compared to the 10,000 seen by human beings).
