Goats, sheep, octopus, and toads all have one thing in common: All four of these species have a rectangle shaped pupil which is different than the round pupil humans and most animals have. The reason behind this is that when dilated, rectangular pupils get very narrow, giving an animal excellent depth perception in their peripheral vision. This helps these four species keep an eye out for predators.
