Red and green eyes at night -

I have been reading an interview with Tim Cahill, where he proposes that different animals eyes shine differently in light at night.  He asks why some are red and some are green.  I go to google to check this out but cannot confirm what he is suggesting.  It is for each of us to notice in the night.  He suggests the eyes of predators are red and populations that are prey like deer reflect green in the night.   Therefore, if you are out in the dark and red eyes are reflecting back at you, you might have a different response than if you were looking at green.  Of course, it might just be a housecat out for an evening stroll.   I suppose our eyes reflect red.  We are predatory it seems, though sometimes just for knowledge and that is a different thing, perhaps, or maybe just an augmentation and expansion of our desire and need to hunt.  Red light, Green!
