The Maltese (Falcon) Dog

So the Maltese dog has quickly become the most popular dog breed in America taking over commercials and dog parks everywhere. Understandable considering how adorable they are with their little tiny white Ewok looking selves.

But did you know that the Maltese dog breed actually has a trait only known to exist in the Maltese world? Their eyes have adapted over time to mainly see the ultraviolet light spectrum. It doesn't mean it can see in the dark and it doesn't mean that it can't see normal wave lengths. But what it does mean is that predominantly what it sees is just like those awesome trippy blacklight posters from your college days. So groooove on that hippy dog lovers
