Extra Ear Muscles, Auriculares muscles

Post by sujin007 on Wed Nov 14, 2012 10:18 pm

Also known as the extrinsic ear muscles, the auriculares muscles are used by animals to swivel and manipulate their ears ,independently of their head, in order to focus their hearing on particular sounds.

Humans still have the muscles that we would once have used for the very same reason, but our muscles are now so feeble that all they can do is give our ears a little wiggle.

The use of these muscles in cats is very visible, as they can nearly turn their ears completely backwards, particularly when they are stalking a bird and need to make the smallest movements possible so as to not frighten its future meal.
