Do you have any idea what is the loudest animal in the world? It’s that spunky fella the Sperm Whale. It communicates using clicking sounds which it makes by using its phonic lips. The noise can reach levels of up to 236 decibels. Click here to learn more about the Sperm Whale. Their sound is around 100 decibels more than the rock bands who have been recorded and measured as the loudest. That list includes Manowar, the Who, Foo Fighters, Leftfield, Motorhead and AC/ DC among many others. Incidentally if you like music you might wish to check out one of my other blogs. It is a music blog called With Just A Hint Of Mayhem, click here to find it! Apologies for that shameless plug!
Incidentally most of the top 5 loudest animals are also aquatic; 2 -Bottlenose Dolphin (220 dB), 3 – Snapping Shrimp (200 dB), 4 – Blue Whale (188 dB) and finally at number 5 representing land dwellers it’s the Howler Monkey (140 dB).
