No cause for alarm

Charles Darwin is a name you hear quite often these days. He wrote the following:
“Not a single domestic animal can be named which has not in some country dropping ears; and the view suggested by some authors, that the dropping is due to the disuse of the muscles of the ear, from the animals not being alarmed by danger, seems probable.”

For the acoustic ecologist there is a strong metaphor in here somewhere I’m sure...
