Can penguins see in the dark?

    Some types of penguins are partly nocturnal, but I don’t believe they have especially good night-vision. Studies have shown that penguins are more likely to hunt when light levels are high, indicating that they cannot see well in the dark.

    Penguin eye structure is designed more for vision in water than on land. For this reason, their vision is better suited for the blue and green hues of water. Responses in the eye of the penguin would cause it to have better vision in dark conditions in water than on land, but their eyes are not specifically built for night vision. Most penguins are known to be slightly more myopic, or near sighted, in the air, which would decrease night vision capabilities.
