How do Sperm Whales communicate?

The ability to produce and perceive sound is important for whales – to navigate, find food, and also communicate.

Toothed whales such as the sperm whale use echolocation to hunt their prey. They send out high frequency clicks then listen for their echo as they bounce back from objects – like their next meal!
