In case you were wondering– given the fact that I spoke to the sheep as if I were addressing human infants– sheep’s auditory frequency range is 100-30,000Hz. The frequency of a human female voice ranges from 165-255Hz (male voice, 85-180). So Mr. Big Food may have to elevate the frequency of his calls. I need not sound so goofy as I do.
And because the you can never know too much… .
Hearing Range of Some Animals (in Hz)
|cat||45 – 64,000|
|human||64 – 23,000|
|dog||67 – 45,000|
|sheep||100 – 30,000|
|rabbit||360 – 42,000|
|mouse||1000 – 91,000|
It drives me nuts when WP won’t allow me to align columns of numerals properly. Apologies.
Another interesting factoid. The dominant frequency of thunder is 100Hz.
Oh! Yes. She eventually came over but Clyde is so dominant– and so much larger– that she has a hard time getting much more than what falls on the ground.
