Technically, any noise is a soundwave so we communicate by soundwaves as well. Smile

Their echo-location is well known. Their clicks and whistles (mainly the clicks in echo-location/sonar) bounce off things and create an image in their brain when the sound gets back to them (like what you see in the article). They do this to hunt creatures hidden under the sand as well. Bats do a similar thing, but sound travels better underwater because the particles in liquids are closer together than the particles in the air.

That was a really interesting article erucysae, thank you for posting it. They are truely remarkable creatures, Im going to post some videos in your thread.

We are not even alone on this planet.
