Have a staring contest with a goat, and you may think you’re going cross-eyed. But you’re not — goats really do have rectangular pupils. And they’re not the only animals: Sheep, horses, octopuses and toads all share this unique characteristic. These animals are more often than not being preyed upon, which makes their panoramic optics essential to their survival. The wider range of vision allows goats to sense a predator in more than one direction, even when they’re grazing. It also enhances forward optics, giving goats an edge when fleeing the scene, as they might need to move fast over rocky terrain.
