Frog Hearing

Amazing Fact: Some frogs hear with their lungs
Panamanian golden frogs don’t have outside ears – their lungs pick up sound waves and direct them to their eardrums. Interestingly, many fish hear in this same manner which supports the link between frogs and their evolutionary ancestors. Dueto internal air-pressure controlled by the frog, it is able to largely ignore its own voice which is incredibly loud.
