I have read something about this but can't remember where it is. Will see if I can find it.

In my personal experience, I think they can. I know that red is one color they are drawn to the most.

I can vouch for the red thing, Cowboy used to glide over to anyone who walked in wearing red

they may not see red though, it could be a different color to them.

But im sure they see some colors... would hate a black and white world lol! I'm gonna test that red color thing too on my gliders see if they chose it.


LIVE life to the FULLEST, that way you really have no regrets when its over..

From "Gliders Uncensored":

Quote:
It is thought that Gliders see the color red, and everything else is in shades of black and white similar to an old movie. The reason Gliders see only the color red, is due to the number of cones in the eye that make up what colors are seen and whats not. The rods are what are responsible for the blacks and whites... the cones... they come in three varieties... red, blue, and green. From what I understand, Gliders only have the cones responsible for seeing reds.


I have gliders who, unquestioningly, can see red and shades of red (pink and orange) and prefer to only sleep in a pouch lined in one of these colors.

Here is a web link if anyone would like to read about Glider eyes. When you scroll to the bottum you will see a 2005 study that talks about seeing in color.

I thought this one explained it pretty well out of all the ones I read.

See what you think?
