More Specific (and Way Cooler Sounding) than Ear Leather

Speaking of ears, here’s a term to add to your otitic vocabulary (it sounds cooler and is more specific than “ear leather.”) If you’ll recall from an earlier post, the “antihelix” is the knobby cartilage found towards the base of a dog’s ear, so it makes sense in a Greek sort of way that the very tip of the ear leather (which also has a name) is called the “helix.”
