    They all do not see black & white. I can't say for sure which animals other than dogs. I do know that they see color. It used to be thought that they don't, but with testing they learned they can recognize differences between colored objects & that their eyes are equipped to see colors. I'm not really sure about other animals. I would have to research that one~
