How can we hear the ocean in a seashell?

We can't. The roar that we hear when we place a seashell next to our ear is not the ocean, but rather the sound of blood surging through the veins in the ear. Any cup-shaped object placed over the ear produces the same effect.

Is it true that ears never stop growing?

Yep. If you've noticed that old people seem to have big ears, you'll be glad to know you're not imagining it. The rest of the body slows down its growth rate as you age, but the ears keep going and going and going....

Do earwigs really crawl into your ears?

Go to sleep and don't worry about it! Superstition has it that the small brown insects with pincers like to enter the ear and crawl around and drive people crazy. In fact, earwigs are harmless.
