Bulls are not excited by the red color

Bulls are not excited by the red color

And the reason is simple: being dichromates like most mammals, they can not distinguish the red color. While the man has a vision called trichromatic vision, the bull has a view based only on two types of photoreceptors: blue, green … but not red.

More than the appearance or the color of the toreador’s cloak, it is the movement of it that makes the bull react because he sees it as a threat.
