What do ear hairs do?
Hold the horse's ear so it is closed. Then run your electric clippers along their ear to trim. I've used and seen this method is used to make their ears look nice and trim, th…e cut hair generally will not fall into their ear, it deafens the sound of the clippers (which should be small hand-held) and you leave the small hairs inside the ear alone.
Camels have ear hair to protect them from dust getting in their ears
You don't pull hair out of a dogs ears, if its some other type of hair that is lodges in it, go to the vet, their ears are very sensitive, poking around a dogs ears may …result in loss of hearing and can be very painful to the dog. Don't do it!
Some people do...they think it makes the horse look fancier It is not really a matter of should you/shouldn't you. It is really a matter of personal preference. Many peop…le that show their horses trim the hair in the ears to make them look more groomed, but for an animal that is not being shown, it is not necessary. The hair in the ears is actually a filter of sorts that keeps things (bugs, dirt, etc.) from entering the ear canal. Just like the hair in our noses, basically.
they are a part of a cell called ciliated cells the hairs are called cilia
Hair will grow in your ears because it acts as a buffer that protects them. Without these hairs you would suffer from far worse damage due to loud noises and insects.
most animals have hair on their ears because the hair magnifies the ears' capacity to receive sound.. hair can pick up air vibrations better than just your bare skin.
To keep dirt out of them, the same as all mammals do; including humans.
It traps dust, dirt and unwanted particles from penetrating further into the ear canal.
The part of the inner ear, called the cochlea, that is shaped like a snail. It has hair cells inside that vibrate and process the different sounds that you hear. Then sends it… to the brain. There are also hair-like cells in the Vestibular System in your ear (the part with multiple circular tubes at the other end of the inner ear from the cochlea). These function to allow us to balance ourselves and orient ourselves in our personal space. The tiny "hairs" are moved in a gel-like liquid when the liquid is moved or sloshed by changes in head position. Our brain determines whether we are lying, standing, bending, moving or holding still, etc. by the signals sent to the brain by the hairs in this part of the ear. See more about the Vestibular System in the related question below. And a more obvious answer might be the body hair on the external ear that has a function of helping to trap and prevent foreign material from entering the ear. Back when we had more hair covering more of our bodies as we evolved, this body hair on our ears also had the function of protecting us from the cold. The external ear has a lower blood supply due to the amount of cartilage and due to its more peripheral position in our bodies which allows it to get overly cold and even frost bitten, like tips of fingers and toes, when in extreme cold temperatures. So the hair on the outer ear once had two functions.
They bend and weave when sound waves hit them and then transmit signals to the brain where it comprehends sound and translates it. See also the related question below about t…he ear "hair" in your Vestibular System (balance center) and the body hair of the external ear.
There is hair on a cats ear because they need hair to keep dust, dirt, bugs and so on, out of the ear. When a cat stops scratching, it means that the mites have been kil…led. if your cat is scratching its ear, I recommend taking it to your local vet. It only takes one mite to start the whole itching frenzy again, so I recommend NOT cutting them. if you do so, i would talk to a Vet tech. Hope I helped!
In Guinea Pigs
No guinea pigs do not have hair on their ears and slightly behind them!
they may have a few but there is less than on the rest of the body.
The hair on one's head grows from the scalp. The scalp has definite edges that do not reach the ears, just as they do not reach the eyebrows.
