Evolved through eons in an elaborate dance between predator and prey, eyes come in an amazing variety.  The vertical configuration of the cat eye allows it to better judge distance and location for close quarters combat, while the sheep eye has an eye better suited to surveying the horizon so that perhaps they can see danger before it sees them. Spencer Luckey's hope for this Climber is that kids might learn a little something while exploring the eyes and come away with a greater appreciation for the other animals we share Mother Earth with.
