Are rabbits color blind?
No, not completely. They do see some limited color, but are equipped to see well at night. They do not see like humans and red, blue and green appear to be their best perceived colors and they may see these colors better than humans. The rule of thumb is that any animal that is active in the day tend to see colors, and those active at night tend to be color blind. Most rabbits seem to fall in between this common notion. It is not unusual to see rabbits day or night.
