It has been postulated that the excellent sense of hearing in moose is mostly due to: (1) the large surface of the external ear, (2) better stereophony due to the large distance between ears, (3) independently movable, extremely adjustable pinna, and (4) the amplification of sounds reflected by the palms of the antlers. The last factor, possible reflection of sounds into pinna by the palm of the antlers, was tested in this study on a large antler trophy of Alaskan moose. The reception of a… 
MORPHOMETRY OF MOOSE ANTLERS IN CENTRAL BRITISH COLUMBIA
TLDR
Antler point counts were the most variable, whereas shaft circumference was the least variable character.
Morphological diversity in the sensory system of phyllostomid bats: Implications for acoustic and dietary ecology
TLDR
The nose leaf consists of two evolutionary modules—spear and horseshoe—suggesting that modularity enabled morphological and functional diversification of this structure, and new links between morphological diversity and ecology are highlighted.
