Bats, with wings adapted for flying, have best hearing among land mammals. Echolocation (ultrasound) helps them find prey with precision.
Moths' exceptional hearing, especially Greater Wax moths, detects predators 100ft away at 300 kHz. Evade danger with swift flight or dropping.
Owls: 225 species, superb vision & hearing. Left ear lower aids sound direction. Excellent hearing above 5 kHz. Great grey owls hunt with precision.
Dolphins echolocate underwater with remarkable hearing 7x better than humans, using clicks and whistles to locate prey and objects.
Dogs: Man's best friend with incredible hearing, detecting sounds from afar, pinpointing sources, and seemingly having a sixth sense.
Cats have superior hearing (up to 64 kHz) due to 30 ear muscles. They hunt with precision, filtering background noise to focus on prey.
Horses: keen hearing, 2.5 miles range, 25 kHz sensitivity, 180° ear rotation. Vital for survival, detect threats, and communicate with others.
Wolves rely on acute hearing for hunting, communication, and survival. Hear sounds up to 10 miles away, with rotating ears for precise direction.
Elephants: exceptional hearing, large ears funnel sound. Detect low-freq sounds 2.5 miles away, even seismic vibrations. Predict quake behavior.
Pigeons: skilled navigators, trusted messengers in wars, keen hearing for distant sounds, use sun, magnetic field, and infrasounds, reach 77.6 mph.
