Question:
Why do sea animals, wild life animals and more all have different hearing levels?


Replies:
They have evolved in different environments and the different environments present different challenges to survival. The animals must evolve to adapt to their surroundings...hearing...or sensing vibrations in air or water as you might expect is critical to survival.
