Amoeba n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Bat poor visual acuity, none of them is blind.It has even been discovered that some species are able to detect ultraviolet light.[1] Bat calls range from about 12,000 Hz - 1,60,000 Hz. n/a They also have a high quality sense of smell. n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Dog Dogs are Dichromat and less sensitive to differences in grey shades than humans and also can detect brightness at about half the accuracy of humans.[2] The frequency range of dog hearing is approximately 40 Hz to 60,000 Hz, which means that dogs can detect sounds far beyond the upper limit of the human auditory spectrum.[3] n/a may be up to 100 million times greater than a human. n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Human red~650 nm to violet ~400 nm (or) VIBGYOR 20 Hz to 20,000 Hz (or) Audio n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
