Stem acting as a kind of resonating space, speakers burst out of the big lungs. Elephants can also communicate remotely with the help of Infrasound – low frequency, sub-sonic rumbling which can actually be felt through the elephant’s sensitive skin on the legs and trunk. There is a chance to tuning with each other.
The Cicada are probably only 1 or 2 inches, but with the “song” that can hit 120 decibels, it can also be easily the loudest insects in the world.
