Do Sharks Have Ears?
I wonder if sharks have ears and can actually hear underwater. I believe they have, just like any other animal but I'm not completely sure.
Ears are very useful when running away from predators I suppose.
Do sharks have ears?

Yes, they do have ears and they're more advance than human ears.
They do not have external ear flaps. They have instead ears inside their heads on both sides of the brain case.
A shark's inner ear can also detect acceleration, and gravity.
Each ear leads to a small pore on the shark's head.
I hope this solves your question.
