Each species have the retina adapted to light conditions dependent on whether the animal lives in diurnal or nocturnal habitats. The non-mammalian species with cone dominance lack a visual cortex. Their "complex" retinas perform much more visual processing than simple mammalian retinas. Mammalian species with a few exceptions have "simple" retinas and leave complex information processing to the visual cortex.
