Surprising Animal Senses
In this astonishing edition of ASK Magazine, you’ll find out just how amazing animals can be. We might think our five senses—seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching make us pretty special but we’ve got nothing on the super-senses of our animal friends.
Learn how pigs are trained to sniff out truffles—a fancy type of mushroom that grows deep underground—and how dolphins can hear up to 160,000 Hz—that’s a really, really high-pitched squeaky sound. Animal senses are so profound and sophisticated that we study them to help us develop our own technology!
And, if you’ve ever thought your dog smelled bad, you’ll find out exactly how wrong you are. Your dog smells good. Very good. Or perhaps, saying your dog smells very well is more accurate. Uncover truth about how dogs track people, animals, and other things with their noses. Spoiler alert: it has to do with the 300 million scent sensors they possess.
