Any animal considered 'prey' has eyes on the sides of thier heads. Deer, birds, etc, so it is easier for them to see predators.
Lions are predators. Typically predatory animal have their eyes set in the fronts of their heads, letting them focus on their prey. Animals who survive by escaping predators, typically have their eyes on the sides of their heads, more nearly giving them 360 degree vision.
because its a predator, all predators have their eyes at the front of their heads, as apposed to animals such as deer, rabbits, mice etc, were their eyes are situated at the sides of there heads so to be aware of their surroundings and alert against predators.
Birds have eyes on the sides of their heads. So do fish.
So as to better see predators sneaking up on them.
Eyes in the front of the head have greater depth perception, but have a narrower field of view. These are found on predators. Eyes on the sides of the heads let the animal see all around them, and are found on prey animals.
Many birds and fish have eyes on the sides of their heads so they can see in almost all directions and look for predators. Predator animals usually have eyes facing forward so they can track and catch prey easily.
This is a dumb question because you should know that horses are prey animals by their eyes, prey animals eyes are on the sides of their heads. Predators of the horse are really anything with pointy teeth and eyes on the fronts of their heads. I know this and I am only 11, that should tell you something.
The position of the eyes on an animal is useful depending on the type of animal it is. For example, animals like lions have their eyes facing forward, because they are predators. Animals like zebra, however, have their eyes on the sides of their heads because they are prey and they need to be able to see more of what is around them.
dogs have better perpherial vision than we do, but animals with eyes on the sides of their heads are generally pray animals, they normally cant see directly in front of them but their eyes allow them to look around and behind them so they can see approcahing predators from all angles. Predators generally have their eyes on the front of their head, becasue they use them to track and hunt prey, they don't need to see around them, but rather focus in on what they are trying yo catch. Dogs are predators their eyes are focused forward, unlike horses who are prey whos eyes are wide set on the sides of their heads
I bet it is because they are predators. While rabbits are scanvengers.
Prey eyes are on the sides of their heads.
A predator animal hunts its prey by using its senses and skills that it has. The animals that are usually prey have eyes on both the right and left sides of their heads, for an example, rabbits. They have eyes on both sides of their heads so that they can see easily on both sides if the predator is coming. The animals that are predators most of the times have claws, like bears, foxes, wolfs, eagles, owls, etc. These predators use their claws. But some predator animals may not have claws, but they may have a good nose, good ears, or sharp teeth.
They have: gills, fins, a strong tail, teeth, camouflage colors, eyes on the side of their heads to look for prey/predators and they are small to run away from predators or hide out in caves.
The lion has eyes in the front of his head because it can focus on the prey. Lions are predators, and as predators they have to be adapted so that they can focus on one thing, being their prey. In contrast, prey animals have eyes on the sides of their head so that they can see predators just about all around them. Also the eyes on the front (binocular vision) allows them to see in three-dimension which allows them to see in depth so they can determine the distance between them and their prey for example.
Animals that are victims of predators usually have their eyes towards the side of their heads because this provides a large (360 degree) field of vision. This allows them to spot predators coming from any direction. Most herbivorous animals have eyes on the sides of their head, including the rhinoceros, parrots, deer, rabbits and horses. On the other hand, acute stereo vision is required by most predators, whose eyes tend to be closer to the front of their heads such as eagles, lions and dogs.
well first of all the question is wrong!! lions dont have eyes on the sides of their heads they have it in the front!!
Because they are predators. Every predator has eyes on the front of their heads. hope this helps!
They have their eyes on the sides of their heads, unlike we humans, who have our pointing forwards. As a typical prey animal, a rabbits eye position helps it to see all around without having to move. It can stay alert and watch its entire surroundings, without potentially giving its position to predators.
Their eyes are far apart on the sides of their heads.
Because most animals do...Why do i have eyes on the front of my head? this answers is not a good answer i can name tonnes of animals that have eyes on the sides of their heads, and birds too.
animals with eyes in front are predators, animals with eyes on the sides are prey.
Rabbits and guinea pigs and other prey animals have eyes on the side of their heads to look out for predators. So, yes they can but it is easier for them to see on the sides.
They have their eyes on the sides of their heads, unlike we humans, who have ours pointing forwards. As a typical prey animal, a rabbit's eye position helps it see all around without having to move. It can stay alert and watch its entire surroundings, without potentially giving its position away to predators.
Most birds which are not predators have eyes on the side of their heads. This is an advantage because they can watch out through a bigger range of angles. Examples are robins, pigeons, swans and blackbirds. Predators such as hawks and owls have eyes at the front because, like us, this gives them binocular vision, which lets you judge depth, an important skill for catching prey.
