Zoopsia, the visual hallucination of animals derives from Zoon — Greek for animal and Opsis for seeing.
These visions of animals arrive in many ways: sometimes they are fearful, sometimes they are openings, and sometimes shadows. An ocular fixation point at 1meter may result in the seeing of white mice, at 2m: pigeons and at 3 m: cats and rabbits. When the moon is particularly bright, zoopsia has a tendency to develop into compound hallucinations.
Zoopsia will open at Art 101
