Amazing Creatures With Sixth Senses

Sea turtles

Sea turtles have one of the strongest internal maps of any animal on the land or in the sea. They can travel more than 10,000 miles (over 16,000 km) in a year and still pinpoint exactly where in the surface world they laid their eggs.


Dolphins, similar to bats and a few other animals, have the amazing ability of echolocation to help them navigate the ocean. The dolphin emits a soundwave that then bounces off any objects in front of it

Guiana dolphins

Guiana dolphins, found off the eastern coasts of South and Central America, take it a step further. Not only are they equipped with echolocation, but they are also blessed with the skill of electroreception.


Most species of spiders have organs known as slit sensilla, which allow them to sense even the slightest amount of movement anywhere in their vicinity.


Pigeons are famous for being some of the best navigators in the world, but how do they do it? They do it through a process known as magnetoreception.


Sharks, like the Guiana dolphin, are also blessed with electroreception. Electroreception is a bit more common in fish than it is in mammals, but it's still quite impressive.

Comb jellyfish

Over millions of years in the depths of the ocean, they have evolved from single-celled organisms into multi-celled creatures that lack a central nervous system or any sort of organs, including eyes.


Similar to dolphins, bats use echolocation to navigate their nocturnal habitats. It's a myth, however, that bats rely solely on echolocation to get around.
