This is a fascinating question and one with a very limited answer. That’s no reflection on the answer or the person giving it, but it does show just how little we know about some things and how far we have to go to learn more. Even in those animals we think we have studied incredibly intensively (like rats and fruit flies) there is still a ton more to learn. As I noted recently, biology is hard! The question is a poser, certainly: can ferrets see in infra-red?
