Eyes in light

There are a few charts online... but none accurate enough for my own taste. From my experience with doing a good bit of night hunting under a red light:
Coyote - Deep red . Not necessarily the brightest of predator eyes. Fox and bobcat shine a lot brighter IMO.
Bobcat - Green / Greenish gold
Mountain Lion - Green / Greenish Gold
Deer - White / Silver
I understand this is a question of curiosity, but I think as hunters we should remember to treat all eye colors the same because you cannot positively identify a target by eye color alone... only by getting a complete view of the entire animal.

Don't know about bobcats, though...Feral cats are really bright, w/ this color, too
I agree w/ Chris on the red light--yote eyes don't seem to reflect back as much w/ that color..Probably cuz red isn't picked up as well (as opposed to green) by the human eye
