Equilbrioception is also how we can sense acceleration and gravity. We also have chronoception, an inner sense of timing, which explains how you know it’s about 2:30 without checking. 

Other animals can sense water currents and pressure, as well as electric and magnetic fields, among other things. We too can sense magnetic fields to a degree – if you’re willing to get magnets placed in your fingertips.

Nature is amazing in the breadth of things for which it can adapt, and the way it does so.
