The Unique Perceptivity of the Horse
Robert M. Miller
Not all prey species are as exceptionally perceptive as the horse. Many of them are endowed with defensive weapons, and corresponding aggressive behaviour, which does not require great perceptive powers in order to be effective. For example the elephant, the Cape buffalo, and even the rhinoceros may be the target of the hunting lion. The size, strength, and weaponry of such animals may be all the defence they need.
