How do dolphins locate their food?



  1. 0 Votes

    To locate food in the wild, most dolphins rely heavily on echolocation, which means they use sounds to find food. They emit high-frequency sounds that bounce off of objects suspended in the water (like a fish), and then return to the hunting dolphin to give an impression of where the prey animal is. Through repeated sound outputs, a dolphin can follow and zero in on a fish, squid, or other eatable sea creature. Echolocation is an effective means of finding food in the dark reaches of oceans or rivers where dolphins do much of their hunting.
