Click-Only Language

'nother question. :)

Has anyone ever heard of a conlang that only used clicks? I'm envisioning a
language for a overgrown scorpion-esque species that doesn't have the
anatomy for making most of our vocal sounds. I sometimes amuse myself by
making random clicky/dolphiny noises and thought it would be interesting to
create an actual language out of the sounds. I imagine it would be a very
isolating language.

One problem I'm having is trying to record accurately each of the sounds I
make. Knowing only English and some Spanish, I'm not used to transcribing
clicks. :P
