Frogs don't have ears, how do they hear?  Birds don't have ears, how do they hear?

Terrible!

Oops, wrong joke  big grin

His mouth flaps could double as vibration sensors, or maybe his whole head vibrates when sound waves hit it, sending messages to his brain.

He could have ears on any other part of his body, though. Maybe his knees.

Oh sure, blame the wizards...

His brain is in his rump, it's possible.

Could be that his ears are really just under his shell. That could explain why he's such a bad doctor, I mean, if his ears and ability to hear are covered by his shell he could have easily screwed up facts in Medical School. You try sitting in a 31st century lecture hall thats all echoy and learn something.

Actually, Mango, sea-lions do have external ears.  It's one of the things that differentiates sea-lions from other seals.

But basically, I think that you're correct.  Plenty of animals lack external ears: birds, reptiles, amphibians, etc.  In fact, I think having external ears might just be a mammal thing.  Of course, some mammals lack them too.  Dolphins, whales, and seals (other than sea-lions  wink ) manage to hear just fine without them.  Dolphins and whales even navigate by sound.  The fact that sound travels well through water probably helps.

Hey, Zoidberg is a sea creature too.  Hmmm...
