Who can horrify with his laughter or make you nervous with his howl?
how far the sounds go animals do – their calls, grunts, screams, screams and the like reflect their characters and personalities? Here, we’ll take a sample of broad-spectrum animals and see if their vocalizations match their appearance and character; good listening !
The Lions: “King” of beasts and rightly known for his roars that can roll through the meadows up to 8km. However, many roaring lions sound extremely hoarse, and some (and their cousins) end the roar with a sound like sawn wood. Automobile and motorcycle manufacturers have long tried to imitate the grunt and dull growl of an angry carnivore (lion, leopard, tiger) in their vehicles’ exhaust systems, which can make your stomach rumble. from anyone.
Tigers: Besides their impressive roar, the tigersThe somewhat lonely call “aaoom-aaaoom” that echoes from the vastness of the jungle at night is hauntingly evocative and gives you hope that he will soon find a deserving partner.
Leopards: The enraged hissing growl of a cornered leopard makes it clear that there is no mercy if the beast can get its claws and jaws inside you. You don’t normally see or hear the beast – perhaps because so many leopards are now migrating to the noisy outskirts of the city and know it’s smart to keep quiet.
Cheetahs: Due to the lack of proper vocal equipment like lions, tigers and leopards have to roar, cheetahs can only emit friendly calls and bird chirps, except when a warning growl is needed.
Wild dogs: For all their ruthless reputation, they have almost friendly whistles and clicks, which they emit while chasing prey as a team to stay in contact and coordinate pursuit.
Wolves: Ferocious and beautiful beasts, they look a bit desperate as they sit on their haunches, lift their muzzles skyward and let out their long yodeling howls as if they were the only animals still alive on earth. Earth. Screaming can easily give you a healthy dose of goosebumps!
Hyenas: Their terrifying liquid laughs and squeals are a clear indication that they care for their victims, and perfectly matches their squeaky, cajoling sideways approach. Heads bowed, shoulders drooping, they dart forward and glide, seemingly relishing the fate of the prey they have encircled and trapped. Their laugh is a laugh that horrifies and is not contagious.
Bear: Angry, crazed bears just make raspy, crazed roars – not the smartest sound you’ll hear from an animal that’s unfortunately smart enough to learn how to ballet in a tutu.
Pigs/wild pigs: Perfectly adapted in shape and size to their environment and the sounds they emit: they grunt and snort deliciously as they rummage through the mud and sniff the tubers without any table manners. But can scream like a soprano having her throat slit in slow motion when under the influence of one of carnivores.
Elephants: For all their massive and dignified presence, elephants seem awfully petulant when throwing a tantrum and trumpeting in frustration or anger. But dignity is restored by their deep bass belly rumbles that can make your own belly rumble uncomfortably, and which transmit through the ground and through meadows and forests to be picked up by feet and ears. other herds, miles away.
Buffaloes: Will snort and bellow belligerently when confronted by predators, but when downed will emit pathetic, desperate moans for help: which are often listened to and followed by the awesome thunder of the hoofs of relief cavalry.
Deer (most species): Being prey, it makes more sense for them to remain silent and listen to lurking predators. But when they sense a threat, they will indeed emit a bark (the sambar goes “dhonk”!) or a high-pitched warning cry and stamp their feet hard before running away. While in rut, Macho Stags emit insane roars/puffs unbecoming of their lordly profiles.
Horses: Their whinnying hysterical neighs are perfect for animals that are so close to having panic attacks and running away every second of the day, but don’t quite fit their lofty profiles. However, when fleeing en masse (or running), their drumming hooves provide wonderful percussion to their undulating motion.
Donkeys: Their mournful and prolonged braying can make you want to laugh and cry at the same time, in addition to surprising you considerably until you re-enter the source of the sound and laugh even more.
Eagles : These skylords – and other raptors – have extraordinarily inappropriate high-pitched squeals: I once mistook the screech of a Pallas fish eagle for a pup slapping its ass!
Crows: Their raucous croaks go perfectly with their raucous crowd mentality. But crow pairs can also cackle sweet nothings…
Mynas: They can look and sound as civilized as any sophisticated gathering of distinguished intellects debating a delicate point of fine art at the BBC, or just as look and sound as rowdy as a burgeoning group of politicians in an unruly democracy.
Jungle Talkers: Their disheveled khaki attire is the perfect match for the cacophony they so love to produce as they search your premises – and it can still make you laugh.
Parakeets: Talkative and colorful like a collection of fisherwomen with a zest for life, their cries can be piercing and go well with their earnest bulging eyes and domed foreheads: Will maintain strict radio silence when raiding a mango or guava orchard .
Sperm whales: The loudest animals in the world; the recordings of their clicks that I’ve heard sound like a rusty old clock winding itself but are apparently loud enough (at 236 decibels) to blow your eardrums if you get too close.
