At night, shine a flashlight on an animal and their eyes light up like light bulbs. Dogs, cats, deer anything. Human eyes don't do that. Why?

Eyes reflect light in proportion to their ability to see in the dark; it enhances the night vision. Peoples aren't that good. Red-eye is taking a picture of the retina, slightly different, but the same idea.

animals have basicly a bigger mirror in the back of thier eye that reflects more light, hence their superior night vision

The animals with the bright eyes were bred in Area 51...[(:|)]
