Animals that feed only on plants are called herbivores.

Dolphins emit high-frequency clicks. when they detect prey, they start sending out more clicks—as many as 500 per second. dolphins have a sensory organ that interprets the echoes. the organ tells them the location, size, and speed of the prey.
