What is echolocation?


Question asked by: knowitall

This is a method used by animals to detect the position of objects, but rather than using sight they use sound. It is typically done by bats and dolphins, and works by emitting high-pitched sounds and listening for echoes returning, enabling the exact location to be determined.
