Bat and dolphin hearing link uncovered

According to a new study, scientists have discovered that the brains of bats and dolphins are remarkably similar. Researchers behind the study state that unlike most mammals, which have one area of the brain linked to hearing, bats and dolphins actually have two.

Experts think this has something to do with these two creatures’ use of echolocation that allows them to see and navigate through their own unique surroundings. The findings came as a surprise because bats and dolphins are so far apart on the evolutionary spectrum. However, it reinforces how advanced the dolphin brain is, and so how intelligent these creatures are.
