This clip is at actual speed.
Mauis dolphin are the smallest dolphins in the world.
Mauis and Hector's don't produce true whistles.
Almost all the sounds of Hector's and Maui's dolphins are short (1/7000 sec) high-frequency clicks centred on 125 kHz. There's essentially no audible component to these clicks - you can hear them only if you slow down the replay. Sometimes, however, the dolphins make these high-frequency clicks so rapidly that while you cannot hear the clicks themselves, you can hear the repetition rate. Engineers and physicists call this "time-separation-pitch". So, when the dolphin makes 600 clicks per second (which they can do easily), you hear a tone of 600 Hz. Sometimes this sounds like a kind of squeal. To show that this is made of high-requency clicks, you need to record it with gear that can record past 150kHz. (Steve Dawson)
