Animal Sounds Are Similar To Morse Code!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Have you ever heard your pet making noises, and wished that you could figure out what he/she was saying?!?

As it turns out, A LOT of people want to know what animals say. So instead of just trying to guess, behavioral biologists from the University of Zurich observed the banded mongoose in Uganda, and noticed that their noises sound like Morse code.

Basing the mongoose's speech on the vowel and consonant order of the human language, doctoral student David Jansen revealed:

"The initial sound of the call provides information on the identity of the animal calling. The example of banded mongooses shows that so-called simple animal sound expressions might be far more complex than was previously thought possible."

That's CRAY, but it's nothing out of the ordinary, especially since we already know animals have outlandish languages.

We're looking forward to more studies being done on animal speech because we definitely wanna know what's on their minds!
