    How reindeer change their eye colour

    Researchers have discovered the eyes of Arctic reindeer change colour through the seasons from gold to blue, adapting to extreme changes of light levels in their environment and helping detect predators.

    From the FT magazine this weekend (2nd article on the page)

    ​And this from the BBSRC

    and the full paper here ​http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.o...32451.full.pdf

    Thats amazing ! I wonder if our Cariboo share this adaptation. A friend of mines Fiance works for Alberta Fish and Wildlife and has been involved with Cariboo population studies, I'll have to ask her when I see her.

    Thanks, interesting post , Steve
