Which pet animals hear ultrasound exceptionally well?

Dogs
Cats
Turtles
Goldfishes
Cats are noc­tur­nal preda­tors and there­fore have ex­cel­lent hearing, among the best of any mammal. They can detect an ex­treme­ly broad range of fre­quen­cies, ranging from 55 Hz to 79 kHz. This is far more than humans (31 Hz - 18 kHz), and dogs (67 Hz - 44 kHz). Cats ability to hear ul­tra­sound is probably im­por­tant in hunting, since many species of rodents make ul­tra­son­ic calls.
