Which biological pigment is found in the rods of the retina and is very sensitive to light?

Answer:

Rhodopsin

Rhodopsin is extremely sensitive to light, and thus enables vision in low-light conditions. When rhodopsin is exposed to light, it immediately photobleaches. In humans, it is regenerated fully in about 30 minutes, after which rods are more sensitive.
