I must say, Batmad, I struggled to find the answer: there were all kinds of other records, but echolocation frequency was a toughie. Thanks for the hint. :thumbs_up:

OWN ;) - Been absent for a solid 2-3 years I think it is? Life's been crazy but I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things here on the forum, and one of them is gonna be the quizzes again. And what better place to start than in the first quiz I started :D...Sadly I made a lot of promises and mistakes on this forum towards 2009/2010 due to, as I said, life being tough my side. But I'm hoping to fix my wrongs and contribute to this forum as I used to. And hopefully the people whom I offended and left a sour taste with will understand what was going on in my life and forgive me :D.

2009/2010 is a long time ago, Batmad, and I can't remember you making a single mistake, to be honest. :wink: You don't need to apologise for anything, young man; just glad your life is easing off there, mate, and that you're gracing us with your knowledge and presence again. :clap: :clap: :clap: And those that were offended ... well ... can't hold grudges, so let's rip and roll and get things sprinting along again. :dance: :dance: :dance: Happy to have the mad bat back again ... :twisted: 8) 8) 8)
