Oryctolagus cuniculus, family hares - Leporidae
Rabbits have an excellent hearing. That is necessary for them to be aware of dangers in time and to manage to flee quickly enough.
Their ears are formed like longish funnels. That enables the immediate perception of sounds. Each of their auricles can be turned autonomically. This is the reason why they can hear forwards by one ear and backwards by the other ear. So they obtain a hearing radius of 360°, this enables them to locate even very soft sounds from all around in the environment.
