I know you will think I am crazy, but if you look at some of Beau's pictures you will see blue eyes. I thought it was because of the camera. I looked at him with the lights out and guess what his eyes are brown on the outside and blue on the inside. They are beautiful.

I believe what you are referring to is the reflective tapetum lucidum. If you ever dissect an eyeball you'll see the the inside back surface of the eye has a reflective blueish coating to it. With flashes and such, the light bounces off that surface and creates the blue "orb" in the eye.

I'll keep that in mind next time I decide to dissect an eyeball :hypnotized:

Very informative reply though.
