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
MORPHOLOGICAL ASPECT OF TAPETUM LUCIDUM AT SOME DOMESTIC ANIMALS
TLDR
An eye fundus examination, in animals of different species : cattles, sheep, pigs, dogs cats and rabbits, to determine the presence or absence of tapetum lucidum, and his characteristics by species to species, age and even breed. Expand
MORPHOLOGICAL AND BIOREFLECTING CHARACTERISTICS OF TAPETUM LUCIDUM IN DOGS AND COWS
TLDR
The results of this research indicate that the anatomy of the eye, particulary shape of the pupil, placement of the eyes on the animals' head, and diet, all affect the morphology and bio-reflecting characteristics of this structure. Expand
The fine structure of the turbot eye (Scophtalmus maximus): A macro‐anatomical, light and scanning electron microscopical study
TLDR
This study is the first to present detailed descriptions of morphological structures and morphometric data for all the layers of the turbot eye using gross, light and scanning electron microscope examinations. Expand
Ocular comparative anatomy of the family Rodentia.
TLDR
There is little information regarding ocular anatomy and histology in many of the rodent species, and the springhaas was the only rodent in the authors' collection that presented a well-developed tapetum lucidum fibrosum. Expand
Relationship between distribution of tapetum fibrosum and retinal pigment epithelium in the sheep eye.
TLDR
It is suggested that approximately 55% of the histological tapetal area is covered with the nonpigmented area and is functional under a natural light condition. Expand
The fibrous tapetum of the horse eye
TLDR
The macroscopic tapetal shape, relationship between the Tapetal thickness and the degree of pigmentation of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), spatial relationship betweenThe visual streak and the tapetum, and wavelength of the light reflected from theTapetum in the horse were clarified. Expand
Ocular microscopy of Bradypus variegatus.
Bradypus variegatus, popularly known as common sloth or brown-throated sloth, is a species with wide geographical distribution in Brazil. Expand on the literature about the species, we aimed toExpand
The retina of the collared peccary (Pecari tajacu): structure and function
TLDR
The collared peccary's retinal features for the first time are described and a comparison of the findings with data from other ungulate species shows some similarities between the peccaries and pig retinas. Expand
Visual adaptation and retinal characterization of the Garganey (Anas querquedula): Histological and scanning electron microscope observations.
TLDR
The findings indicated a higher degree of functional adaptation between the morphological structure of the eye and the surrounding environmental conditions. Expand
Anatomic features of the cetacean globe.
TLDR
Measurements of globe dimensions and morphological characteristics of the cetacean globe with an emphasis on Bowman's layer and encapsulated sensory corpuscles (ESC) for available cetACEan species are provided. Expand

Fine structure of the tapetum lucidum of the paca Cuniculus paca.
TLDR
The tapetum lucidum of the paca or spotted cavy (Cuniculus paca) has been studied by light and electron microscopy and energy dispersive studies indicate that they are rich in sulphur. Expand
Studies on the eyes of gars (Lepisosteidae) with special reference to the tapetum lucidum.
TLDR
Eyes of gars (Lepisosteus) possess a yellow tapetum lucidum which is located in processes of the pigment epithelium, and a method of extracting the pigment is described, and the ultraviolet/visible spectrum shown. Expand
Electron microscopy of retinal tapetum (Caiman crocodilus)
TLDR
The distribution and ultrastructure of the retinal tapetum lucidum in Caiman crocodilus is described and heavy pigmentation of the apical tips of pigment cell processes by melanosomes is observed, but only within the lower half of the fundus. Expand
Fine structure of the tapetum lucidum of the domestic ferret
TLDR
The fine structure of the tapetum lucidum of the domestic ferret was studied by both light and electron microscopy and the dominant cytological feature of these cells is numerous electron dense rodlets whose long axes are perpendicular to the oncoming light. Expand
Electron microscopic study of the occlusible tapetum lucidum of the southern fiddler ray (Trygonorhina fasciata).
TLDR
The choroidally located tapetum lucidum of the southern fiddler ray has been examined by light and electron microscopy in both light- and dark-adaptation. Expand
Fine structure of the tapetum cellulosum of the grey seal (Halichoerus grypus).
TLDR
The morphology of the tapetum lucidum of the grey seal has been studied by light and electron microscopy and an accumulation of numerous electron-dense rodlets of presumed zinc cysteine is found. Expand
Electron Microscopy of the Tapetum Lucidum of the Cat
TLDR
Observations plus the similar density of the two inclusions lead to the belief that the tapetal rods may be melanin derivatives, which are typical of the choroidal melanocytes of the cat eye. Expand
A comparative study of the tapetum, retina and skull of the ferret, dog and cat.
Results of this investigation indicate that the ferret (Mustela putorius) closely resembles the dog (Canis familiaris) and should be a useful research animal alternative. The tapetum lucidum is aExpand
Tapetum lucidum in the pigmented and albino ferret.
TLDR
Light and electron microscopy showed that the tapetum lucidum in the pigmented ferret is morphologically indistinguishable from that in the albino ferret, and it can be concluded that the matrix of the Tapetal rods is not melanin. Expand
Fine structure of the retinal epithelium and tapetum lucidum of the ranch mink Mustela vison.
TLDR
The morphology of the retinal pigment epithelium, Bruch's membrane, choriocapillaris and tapetum lucidum has been studied in the eye of the ranch mink by light and electron microscopy. Expand
