Animals and Time Distortions

I've heard kicking around the idea that animals are able to see time distortions which accounts for some of their odd behavior at times. Such as barking at blank spots or something. What do you guys think on this idea?

When I was at school, I was taught that flies perceived time at a different rate than humans (and that was the reason why it i'ts difficult to swat a fly). I'm assuming that some form of research has to have been done in regard to that hypothesis in order for it to be taught in British schools.

 

Here is a link to recent research, concerning the relationship between size and the perception of temporal information.

 

Metabolic rate and body size are linked with perception of temporal information
