    Cats use their whiskers in a similar way. They don’t actually “see” with them, but they do use them to hunt, navigate, and sense many things about their environemnt. The whiskers are heavy with nerve endings and are very sensitive. If they become damaged, a cat with become confused or disortiented, and may even bite the wrong part of a mouse it is hunting. It is similar to how humans “see” radar.

    Strictly speaking, animals do not see with their hair. But in some animals, antennae which are hair-like are used for similar functions to that of the eyes.
