Depending how one defines "hearing", I would go with something in the whale family.

Or bats.

What do I know?

Is it a moth of some sort? One of those ones with big antennae?
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Blue whale. Or an octopus. Or some kind of blue-whale/octopus hybrid.

Definitely.
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

The beluga is the top of the whales I think but no whale made the top 10 despite excellent hearing.

Fans of Finding Dory would know that

I've always loved the book "Horton Hears a Who" ... I'm surprised that he wasn't mentioned or hasn't been mentioned yet.
