How can I tell if I am a tetrachromat?
The more we can find out about the colour vision of people with a fourth cone in their retina, the more we will discover about vision altogether. If you’ve ever noticed that you can differentiate easily between different shades, or are always seeing colours within other colours, you might well be a tetrachromat!

Can tetrachromats see ultraviolet?
The goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus) and zebrafish (Danio rerio) are examples of tetrachromats, containing cone cells sensitive for red, green, blue and ultraviolet light.
Are all tetrachromats female?
Tetrachromacy is thought to be rare among human beings. Research has shown that it’s more common in women than in men. A 2010 study suggested that nearly 12 percent of women may have this fourth color perception channel. Men aren’t as likely to be tetrachromats.
