These animals can hear everything – Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard

From TED Ed.

Explore the extraordinary auditory adaptations in the animal kingdom, and find out which creature has the best hearing.

The world is always abuzz with sounds, many of which human ears simply can’t hear. However, other species have extraordinary adaptations that grant them access to realms of sonic extremes. And some of them don’t even have ears— at least, not like we typically imagine. So, which is the best listener? Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard explores the auditory capabilities of the animal kingdom.
