  • OBJECTIVES The phenomenon of 'eye-shine' is seen in a variety of animal species, and is generally thought to be related to the presence of an intraocular reflecting structure, the tapetum lucidum. [...] Key Method Morphologic observations were made from paraffin and plastic embedded specimens. Specimens were treated with traditional stains and observed by light and transmission electron microscopy. RESULTS Some species (primates, squirrels, birds, red kangaroo and pig) do not have this structure and they…Expand Abstract
