In many class 2 ganglion cells in the toad (Bufo bufo) retina the blue-sensitive green rods contribute only to the “on” responses, while the yellow-sensitive cones contribute to both “on” and “off”. Thus the spectral sensitivities of the on and off responses deviate in the blue and violet parts of the spectrum (Fig. 1). This correlates with Dietz's (1972) finding that toads detect a moving blue prey-dummy irrespective of the intensity of the grey background.
