For whatever reason, some animals have screams that sound like a human, and if you’re lucky (or unlucky for that matter), you may have heard these screams before and thought someone was injured and need help! For most animals, screaming is a form of communication, either with their own species, with humans, and even with their own prey.
According to Charles Darwin in his study The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals, written in 1872, “With many kinds of animals, man included, the vocal organs are efficient in the highest degree as a means of expression. ” no, these animals scream for similar reasons as humans.
When we humans are afraid or feel that we are in danger, we make piercing noises in an attempt to call for help, or to warn other people of possible danger. this list was put together to satisfy that curiosity!Red Foxes There are many horror stories from people who live near the woods and keep hearing a woman screaming or crying.
Most people don’t know that these screams may come from a type of foxes called Red Foxes! The most common reason foxes howl is to attract a mate.
So you actually hearing their fox pick up lines 😉 This 10 second video uploaded by Daniel Izzo shows a red fox screaming.
I know now that we know!Gibbon ApesGibbon apes make this whoop whoop noise that resembles the noise people make when they cheer on their favorite football team, or literally anyone who’s really excited about something. In the video, the Gibbon even belched after finishing a bottle of beer!Bull Frogs Yes, frogs are shy and CAN scream, and they sound like cry babies! Although not all frogs sound like crybabies baby, this particular species of frogs sounds almost like a baby in the middle of the night asking for a bottle.
This cry is the way these frogs scare off predators, or, as in the video, to express discomfort. Bull frogs, and frogs in general, are commonly found in lakes.
So if you live near a lake and hear a crying baby in the middle of the night and you don’t have a baby, you can be sure it’s not a ghost baby! Peacocks Another animal whose cry sounds like a crying baby is a peacock. .Flashing their colorful feathers, male peacocks make piercing calls during the breeding season to attract female peacocks.
Women will hear this majestic cry and think, “Hmm, he looks like a very attractive man, let’s see where he is.” However, to human ears, a male peacock screaming sounds like a few-month-old baby throwing a tantrum. , but it has almost the same effect: “Hmm, like a baby, let’s see where it is!” Parrots Parrots are known for their mimicry abilities.
They do this with their thick tongues and place them correctly in their mouths to produce the same sound they heard. In this video, a woman’s voice can be heard, who seems to have been killed and is screaming for help to be released.
The police arrived and found out that it was a parrot making noise! Apparently, this man owned this parrot for more than 40 years, and when he was a teenager, he taught it to scream for help and say “let me go. ” when it was caged!Musk DucksWhile we are talking about parrots’ ability to imitate noise, there is also a species of duck found in Australia that has learned to imitate passing conversations.
They’re called musk ducks, and in this video, you can hear a recording of them saying “You bloody fool.” Now, it’s not technically a scream, but if they can imitate human speech, what’s stopping them from imitating human screams?
Watch out for the ducks, you bloody fools! Penguins Another type of bird that made it to this list is penguins. Although it’s not always followed, this video captures a group of penguins just going about their day when one of them slips and lets out a sort of exasperated grunt like a very frustrated person, or a man just stuck his finger in something! You’ll also notice that this incident startles the other penguins as they collectively make a cute almost unison noise, kind. by saying “Oh, are you okay?” Seals Seals are the cute and adorable animals you just want to hug… until they scream like a man! The previous animals on this list were mostly screaming women and crying babies, but this time, we hear a seal screaming like a human in pain.
But in reality, these cute little animals are just sleepy, and yawn as loudly as some humans do. This video was uploaded by Lacey Irvin with advocacy to save and protect the Koala and Koala habitats in Australia.
Except when they’re crying and screaming, in which case they’re like toddlers throwing a tantrum!
(But I mean, little angry pugs are technically toddlers having a tantrum, right?) There are many dog breeds that sound like human children who scream, protesting that they want ice cream for breakfast, but this little angry pug in video. just takes the whole cake.
Even the sobbing and building up in the beginning is like a toddler about to throw a tantrum!
Maybe you’re not on the internet yet, maybe you’re not a meme person, but basically, goats are known on the internet for their human-like screams!
You can see different types of goats that have the same ability to scream as a human, and although it can be scary if you hear it out of nowhere, it is definitely entertaining and really funny just watching them scream their lungs.
