Why rabbits and parrots can see behind them?


ONLY two animals can see behind themselves without turning their head and they are rabbits and parrots. Their eyes are on the sides of their head, instead on the front and this allows them to swivel 360 degrees.

The eyes or skull, is arranged in such a way that nothing blocks the field of view towards the back. They also swivel independently; which means that they can keep their eyes on predators while looking for food at the same time. – SCIENCE BRIDGE ACADEMY
