7 Animals With an Amazing Sense of Hearing

3. Lynx

Category: Super ears

The lynx’s wonderful hairs have a special purpose. They are like antenna, directing sound into the ears. This works so well that it can hear sounds from a whole kilometer away.

2. Goldfish

Category: Precise ears

Hearing isn’t always a blessing. The goldfish could sing a song about it. Or blub a song? When it gets too loud, they quickly get stressed and simply close their ears.

If an animal doesn’t have ears that point up, you might think that it can’t hear. But that’s not quite true. They might not have outer ears like people do, but they have different organs that they use to hear sounds. In the form of waves (like when your phone buzzes in your pocket). But all animals that can hear have one thing in common: they can go deaf. Due to bacteria, illness or injury. Even a gust of air can be dangerous. If you blow into a dog’s ear, you can damage its sensitive hearing.
