I can haz iftop x 5?

No, apparently not.

Code:
# lsof | grep bpf                                                       
iftop      1106    _iftop    4u    VCHR       23,5        0t0   58522 /dev/bpf5
dhclient  10196      root    5u    VCHR       23,9 0t15376716   58526 /dev/bpf9
iftop     10521    _iftop    4u    VCHR       23,8 0t30713975   58525 /dev/bpf8
