I came across an article I found very interesting today, so I wanted to pass it along!
National Geographic has compiled a list of the 7 loudest animals around the world. The animals listed vary a great deal in size; some of them may surprise you.
The one I found most interesting was the shrimp that stuns it’s prey with a 200 dB mini explosion!
Check out the rest of the animals here: National Geographic: World’s Loudest Animals
Anything above 80 dB can start to harm your hearing and cause permanent hearing loss if you are repeatedly exposed to the noise. If you come across any of these animals, make sure to wear ear protection!
Join the discussion: let me know which one you were most surprised by in the comments!
