Animal senses

Did You Know?

Like humans, animals use at least five different modes of sensing their environment:
Sight, Sound, Touch, Taste and Smell.

But animals do not perceive the environment the way humans do.

  • There are many animals that can hear sounds with a pitch that is much Lower or much Higher than what humans hear
  • Some animals can pretend to look exactly like other, poisonous animals to trick predators, This is called Mimicry
  • Some birds can trick other birds into caring for all their babies, This is called Brood Parasitism
