Pigeons have an incredibly low hearing frequency, something like 0.5 herz! This helps them to hear sound over long distance and to detect storms and helps them to navigate over long distances. According to OneKind they are only one of four animals that can recognize themselves in a mirror which was worth a mention in itself!
So there you have it, ten animals with great hearing ranging from some of the smallest to the largest and there's even a mix of domestic and wild! Some of these animals have some seriously good hearing to help them out when living in the wild, which they use to help them hunt or help them to avoid danger - others allow them to help out humans such as dog's who are now used by forces such as the police and armed forces for their heightened senses!
