How Ultrasound Works

A rare frog uses ultrasound to communicate, a clever tool that helps it overcome the noise of the waterfalls it lives in, researchers say.The concave-eared torrent frog (Amolops tormotus) is the first non-mammalian species known to use the ultra-high frequencies that humans cannot hear.It joins bats, dolphins and whales, and a small number of rodents, in the elite club of creatures that can communicate this way.
