Most mammals have a much better sense of smell than people do. The eagle’s keen eyesight is far better than ours. We can hear only those sounds between 20 and 20,000 vibrations per second, while dogs can hear sounds from 15 to 50,000 vibrations per second. Bats, which use the echoes of sounds to locate their prey, can hear sounds of 1,000 to 120,000 vibrations per second, and dolphins can hear sounds of 150 to 150,000 vibrations per second. Figure 1 is a graph that shows the range of hearing and voice sounds for several different animals.
There was the owl with the mouse in its talons! An hour later, he repeated the experiment with the same results. The owl, although raised in captivity, had learned to hunt very quickly after a few practice sessions in light. But was the owl really locating mice with its ears, or did it smell the mouse? Perhaps the owl detected its prey by the heat radiating from the mouse’s body. Could the owl, like rattlesnakes, have eyes that can see the infrared light released by warm bodies? com FIGURE 13: A large part of a barn owl’s diet is mice.
Some are encased within sculptured shells; others look like miniature worms that inch along. Still others are master builders: Attached to submerged objects or plants, they construct symmetrical tubes. A common rotifer is Philodina, which is so abundant it can be found in almost any drop of water from a pond, ditch, or gutter. It resembles an inchworm with two rotating wheel organs. Using a kitchen baster, collect outdoor water samples and place them in collecting containers. With an adult present, try sampling from a variety of microhabitats, including standing water in gutters, ditches, or ponds.
