How do they see?

I often try to imagine what animals see and how they see it. Especially my Red Devil crabs, which appear to have a 360º field of view. Their eyes seem to always be looking in my direction, but I think that’s a bit of an illusion to me, probably resulting from the black center of their eye floating inside a clear bubble.

ARS Technica has an article about Jumping spiders, and a study that investigates how they see their prey. A very interesting read, check it out.
