While many animals ''do'' have interesting and novel abilities, they also lack some of the senses humans consider to be mundane - tri-chromatic vision most obviously (but not exclusively). No single animal has all the nifty keen abilities you saw on that one DiscoveryChannel special.

Added DiffLines:

** In ''Rugrats'', Spike's point of view is always shown in grayscale, since dogs don't see color, but his ''sound'' perception is different every time: in one, human dialogue is understandable but a bit distorted; in another, dialogue is about half understandable and half gibberish, but distorted into extremely deep voices; and another had no distortions but was all gibberish and mumbling with a different sound for each character.

* Each Species in ''{{Ironclaw}}'' has one or two Natural Senses, but no more; when using those senses, they can include their Species Trait in their Observation roll. Some Species have Gifts that improve those sense even further (Keen Eyes, Keen Ears, Keen Nose), or provide exotic sensory abilities like Echolocation.

* Much is made of how dogs and foxes perceive things through their noses in ways humans can barely understand in ''Literature/TheFoxAndTheHound'', but Copper the dog's eyesight is so bad that he seems to consider clear colour vision a Mysterious Human Sense.

See also SuperSenses, SpiderSense and AnimalEyes. Compare SenseFreak. Super-awesome animal-like senses are often employed as one of the reasons why OurElvesAreBetter (PettingZooPeople as well) and the lack of those makes humans PunyEarthlings in comparison.
