Wow, what an incredibly interesting finding and well-written article to bring the discovery to life for readers. This piece does a great job of exciting readers in the same way researchers are excited by the finding, while still grounding the reader in the fact that the discovery has not yet been peer-reviewed, replicated, or truly verified.

Very interesting article about tetrachromats, and how the studies in this field are being conducted. I heard about women seeing more colors than men, but this 12% of the women population being four-coned is surprising! I like how the content was organized in a way to introduce new information that always looks complementary to the previous one. Well explained and structured. I got excited and curious about reading this one.
