True, true. I had opportunity to research this subject while writing my novel, for character info (who was colour blind).

As it appears, women are more able to tell various tones of red, for instance, apart than are men. Men are also three times more likely to be colour blind than are women.

It seems that most species with increased ability to view colours and tones also are more likely to be handicapped with poor night vision---such as many birds who see ultra violet light, yet cannot see in the dark well.
