Default World's Loudest Creature (relative to size)

Water boatman is the world's loudest animal - Telegraph


"The creatures, which are around three quarters of an inch in size and swim upside down using two long legs like oar paddles, produce 99.2 decibels of noise the equivalent of listening to an orchestra play loudly from the front row. Dr James Windmill, from the University of Strathclyde, said the sound was within the human hearing range."
