Did you know that goats can see what is behind them without turning around? Goats have strange rectangular pupils that allow them to see 320 degrees around them! This gives them the ability to see predators more easily, even while grazing. They can also rotate more than 50 degrees per eye, which is 10 times that of the human eye. Keeps them alive and out of predators' way! Pretty amazing isn't it?!
