Barn owls keep their acute sense of hearing into old age, scientists have discovered.
Previously, starlings have been found to have this ability, suggesting birds are protected from age-related hearing loss.

Put human ears onto any animal (land or sea). PLEASE NOTE: LIMIT 3 ENTRIES PER PLAYER. For more on this story Visit This Link
