The hairiest insects and animals were revealed recently in a study that analyzed multiple non-follicly challenged species.
Each has evolved unique ways of cleaning themselves, given all of that hair, with scientists now hoping to apply some of those techniques to cleaning manmade equipment, such as drones.
In the tenth spot on this list is the common housefly, which has 16,000 hairs.

"The least hairy animal of the group, the housefly, primarily uses its hairs as sensors," co-author Guillermo Amador of the Georgia Institute of Technology told Discovery News. "Flies use their mouths to help groom, digesting a lot of the particles they accumulate."
He added that another type of common fly, the fruit fly, uses hairs on its head and thorax to catapult dust off at accelerations of up to 500 times Earth's gravity.
