Ask Dr. Universe: Are there creatures with one eye?

Dr-Universe-230SPOKANE, Wash. – The animal kingdom is full of amazing eyes. And yes, there are actually creatures on our planet that have just one.

That’s what I found out from my friend Kevin Kaiser, a veterinarian and graduate of the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. He knows a lot about how different creatures see the world.

As a veterinarian working in Spokane, Wash., he also specializes in caring for animals’ eyes.

“There is one species that has only one eye naturally,” he said, “and they are from a genus called copepods.”
