Black cat yawn and pounce

Did you know that cats pupils expand right before they’re about to attack something? I don’t know why I never noticed this before… I always just assumed that their pupils would grow or shrink based on light. I wanted to try and film Metroid’s eyes doing this (it took a while because the boy is quite camera shy). I finally captured it, with a bonus big up-close yawn at the beginning:

  1. My girlfriend pointed this out to me not more than a week ago. IT’S SO NEAT.

  2. This is actually pretty common among animals. Their eyes will dilate when they see something ‘interesting’. For obvious reasons, dilating their eyes will allow them to see better, letting in more light. Very cool you got it captured! 🙂

  3. Woah! That’s awesome! It looks like he’s being bewitched when it happens!

  4. D: That totally made me jump.

  5. Wow that is mos def noticeable! I know we humans also do that when we see interesting or attractive stuff.
