Of course it’s the proportional size that matters not the actual measurements. Most of you would just think of an elephant as the bearer of the world’s biggest ears. And you’d be right, but some other critters have even bigger ears (proportionally), and for a good reasons, too.
Without further ado, here are 9 cutest animals with the biggest, floppiest, and most veiny… ears!
1. California Leaf-nosed Bat
Naturally, a beast that can’t see too well (which by the way, is a myth but I needed a segue) must have one or more of its senses heightened. California leaf-nose bat’s hearing would put to shame even the most advanced human technology! Out of all the bat species in the world, these guys have the biggest ears, which they use to hunt bugs in the dark. You know, echolocation.
2. Black-Tailed Jackrabbit
You’ve all seen rabbits either in the wild or on TV, so you know their most distinctive feature is a pair of long ears. But not all rabbits are created equally. The black-tailed jackrabbit, which you can find in the western United States and Mexico. These big ears are useful for locating the potential danger.
Who’s a cute kitty? This African serval is the cutest feline I’ve ever seen! And look at those humongous ears… d’awww! 10/10 would get scratched to death just to cuddle this beast.
