      Interesting question. It’s very hard to know what other animals sense and experience. I am so very big compared to my predators that they might not be able to see me very well. Their eyes are tuned to see prey sized items. But they do run away when i try and pick them up. My guess is that they can sort of see me and my movement, but not very well. Like i am all blurry until my hand gets really close to them.
