Apparently not how to spell “determine.”

Is this homework?

Have you looked up day and night vision and other factors?

Do you know what cone cells and rod cells do in the eye? Do you know what is different about their functions?

Are you asking if this makes them more valuable? or more closer to human? What are you asking? If they see better then they are better?

Cone cells—> daytime vision
Rod cells—> nighttime vision

Animal is both active during the day and at night? When the heck does it sleep then?
