"Small toothed whales of the family Phocoenidae and delphinid genus Cephalorhynchus produce long-duration narrowband biosonar clicks above 100kHz that can be seen as an adaptation for short range echolocation in shallow water... the distantly related, and larger pygmy sperm whale Kogia breviceps (Kogiidae), that is a deep-diving, cephalopod -eating toothed whale, produce narrow-banded high frequency (NBHF ) clicks, identical to those of Phocoena...Thus, NBHF biosonar signals have evolved on three independent occasions" Madsen et al. 2005
