Our Blogging Buddy, Mr. Salsich, left us a great comment on our “Bats!” post. He also asked us the question, “Can you think of any other mammals that use echolocation?” We thought that it would be a great idea to do some more research and find out. We quickly discovered that whales and dolphins are mammals who also use echolocation like bats. Of course, we started to wonder what they might sound like. Here is a link that we shared in class to listen to the sounds that dolphins make.
