Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) echolocation beams are typically characterized as symmetrical -3 dB beamwidths; however, the functional width of the beam during target detection has not been explored. Angular target detection thresholds of an echolocating dolphin were examined to more fully describe the functional characteristics of the echolocation beam. The dolphin performed an echolocation detection task with its head held in a fixed orientation. Targets were placed 9 m in front of… CONTINUE READING
