Super Senses

Think you’ve got a good sense of smell? Well stand by to get a taste of the top ten Most Extreme: Super Senses in the animal kingdom.

Produced by NHNZ

Have you ever wanted a super sense? Would you like to be able to see in the dark, or detect just one molecule of scent? Well some animals already have super-human powers of perception. Join us as we countdown the top ten super senses in the animal kingdom and compare them to our feeble five senses.

The Most Extreme: Super Senses has sniffed out the top ten animals with the ultimate seeing, smelling, feeling, tasting and hearing abilities. Featuring in the line-up are pocket-sized primates with eyes bigger than their brain; elephants that can hear with their feet; and pigs with 20,000 taste buds—three times the number found on a human tongue.

Some animals are even equipped with a sixth sense. But you don’t have to be psychic to discover what happens when the senses are taken to The Most Extreme…
