Phokojwe, nice Q. :thumbs_up: A hint though: don't give a clue too quickly - let us work at it a bit. :wink:

Phokojwe, is it the black-bellied korhaan that you're talking about?

Thanks Phokojwe. :D They are truly comical birds and I love watching their call progressions. There is one that has been hogging a hillock on the Rabelais Dam for the last two years (I presume it's the same one) and, every time we pass that way, we make it a point to stop and watch him. Hope he finds those elusive females soon. :pray:

Now to think of a suitable Q. :hmz: By the way, I wonder if some humannoises could be classified under this thread? :twisted: :lol:

Question (whew, finally) ....

Rhinos, giraffes, hippos, and elephants can communicate over several thousand metres. What sound do they use to achieve this?

I believe they use ultrasonic sounds for communicating over this distance :hmz:

They use sub-sonic sounds. Too low for humans to detect.

Thanks for the answers, Phokojwe, Heksie, and Rooies.

Though Phokojwe and Heksie were on the right track, it is indeed infrasonic wavelengths - mostly below the human lower limit of hearing - that these animals use to communicate over long distances. Well done, Rooies. :clap: :clap:
