Does a ferret see color?
Question Date: 2014-08-28
Answer 1:

Ferrets, like all mammals except primates, see two-color vision, which means that they can tell blue apart from the other colors, but cannot tell green from yellow and from red. We humans are primates, which is why we can tell green and red apart.
