Chinese ‘Cat-Boy’ Can See in the Dark

Posted on July 29, 2009

Referred to as the CAT-BOY, Nong Youhui from southern China has confounded scientists with his bizarre ability to see in pitch-blackness with his blue eyes that actually glow in the dark!

Having bright blue eyes in China is certainly weird enough, but Nong Youhui’s dad, Ling, was always concerned and feared they signified something deep and dark that he did not understand.

“They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did,” said Ling.

The boy has been subjected to a battery of medical tests, all of which were conducted in abject darkness and results have indicated that he does indeed have the ability to read perfectly in the dark and see as clearly as most people do during the day.

Experts believe the boy was born with a chronic condition known as leukodermia (also called Vitiligo), which is characterized by spots or bands of unpigmented skin. The precise cause of leukodermia is very complex and not fully understood. It is known that as a result of this auto-immune disorder, eyes are more sensitive to light and without as much protective pigment as would be found in normal eyes.

If this bizarre anomaly causes those afflicted to have vision similar to that attributed to felines, does it then raise some uncomfortable questions about evolution and exactly where human beings fit into the process? Are we still under construction, so to speak?

One could ask CAT-BOY, but would he answer?

Indeed, does he even know?
