Echolocation is the location of an object or prey using sound to reflect off that object to determine distance, size and shape. Bat can determine an object as thin and fine as human hair using their echolocation.

This is what  Big Brown Bat’s sonar sounds like here! Human ears can not hear these frequencies normally! Ellie and Edmond will talk more about bat echolocation as they introduce a few cool species of these flying mammals!
