Right! What's the ecological web?

I think it's a food web in an ecological system.  What eats what.

So... Horizontal eyes = animals that get eaten?

Horizontal elongated pupils = better field of vision to enhance awareness of predators.

Ah! Those that get preyed on need extra peripheral vision to have a chance at survival. Clever.
