Best Answer

A narwhal makes a range of sounds. The sounds include clicks, squeals, trills, and whistles. Scientists still are sorting the possible reasons for the wide array of sounds. But one suggestion is the use of sound for communication, and for the echolocation purposes of hunting and navigation.

Does the narwhal use echolocation?

Yes, the narwhal uses echolocation. It communicates and navigates by an array of sounds. The sound waves travel until they bounce off obstacles. The returning sound waves then are processed by the narwhal's own head and possibly own tusk. The narwhal then knows what obstacles are in and near its path and what evasive action to engage in.

How does a narwhal swim?

Answer #1 by Poke bro With their tail. Answer #2 by Ginezumi A narwhal [Monodon monoceros] swims with the upturned tips of its flippers, its tusk and head, and its tail. The flipper tips and the tail help the narwhal steer. The flipper tips also help the narwhal stop. The tusk and head help the narwhal to move by echolocation. The tusk detects differences in water temperature, salinity and pressure that may affect swimming conditions. The mouth emits sounds that come back as sound waves. The sound waves are processed by the head, and possibly also by the tusks, to swim around upcoming obstacles in the sea.
