    Ever heard of echolocation?

    Some animals, like bats, use echoes from the sounds they create to help them hunt in the dark. With their big, wide ears, it helps them to capture these sounds that bounce back to ‘see’ their prey. While we are not able to have this unique ability, find out how bigger ears could make us hear better!
