Detection Abilities and Signal Characteristics of Echolocating False Killer Whales (Pseudorca crassidens)
False killer whales (Pseudorca crassidens) are deep-diving, pelagic animals that inhabit tropical and temperate waters of the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Highly social animals, they have been seen in herds of more than 100 individuals. They feed on squid and large fish.
