Wax moth can sense highest recorded frequency

1 post in this topic

The greater wax moth is capable of hearing the highest recorded frequency of any animal in the natural world, researchers have discovered.

A team at Strathclyde University in Glasgow found the moth can sense sound frequencies of up to 300kHz.

Humans can only manage up to 20kHz, while dolphins, which use ultrasound, have limitations around 160kHz.
