Below are some of the animals who have greater hearing sense than any one else.
Greater Wax Moth (Galleria Mellonela)
The greater Wax moth or honey comb moth has the best hearing ability in the animal kingdom. It is the only member of the genus Galleria. It is found in most of the world, including Europe and adjacent Eurasia, its presumed native range, and as an introduced species on other continents, including North America and Australia.
Its close relative, the lesser wax moth (Achroia grisella), is also a member of tribe Galleriini of the pyralid subfamily Galleriinae.
It is capable of hearing sounds with frequencies up to 300kHz. At our best, humans can hear and interpret sound only to the extent of 20kHz. This extraordinary sense of hearing is mainly useful to outwit bat, which is its main predator.
Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.
Bats use a process called echolocation to emit ultrasonic sounds through the mouth. They listen to the echoes of those calls from various objects and locate and identify them.
Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing and feathers adapted for silent flight.
An owl’s sense of hearing is attributed to several unique features. The bird’s ear holes are located higher than ours, opening the doors to a wider variety of sounds; the owl also possesses uncanny reaction time. An owl could determine the direction and distance of a smaller bird in 0.0th of a second.
Pigeons and doves constitute the bird clade Columbidae, that includes about 310 species. Pigeons are stout-bodied birds with short necks, and short, slender bills with fleshy ceres. They feed on seeds, fruits, and plants. This family occurs worldwide, but the greatest variety is in the Indomalaya and Australasia ecozones.
Pigeons can process sound at much lower frequencies than humans, allowing them to detect distant storms and volcanoes. These sounds supply them with an entire range of navigational tools, such as sounds deflected horizontally from hills and mountains that allow them to get around effectively. Pigeons also possess the equivalent of an in-built compass which allows them to navigate using the Earth’s magnetic field and the position of the Sun.
Dolphins are cetacean mammals closely related to whales and porpoises. They are found worldwide, mostly in the shallower seas of the continental shelves and are carnivores, eating mostly fish and squid.
Dolphins have high level of complex hearing ability because of the highly developed auditory cortex of its brain. Dolphins can hear in a frequency range of 7.5 times wider than the human. An echolating dolphin can detect a 2.5cm object from over 70m away. A dolphin will squeak and listen for the sound to bounce back into its lower jaw, giving it an impressively detailed audible description of what’s up ahead.
