Audio: Whale Sounds Like Human Being [update: sounds like "Chacarron"!]
October 22, 2012
This is so funny. It sounds like a slightly tipsy dude singing nonsense lyrics through his nose:
The whales are known as “canaries of the sea” for their high-pitched chirps, and while a number of anecdotal reports of whales making human-like speech, none had ever been recorded.
When a diver at the National Marine Mammal Foundation in California surfaced saying, “Who told me to get out?” the researchers there knew they had another example on their hands.
Once they identified NOC as the culprit, they made the first-ever recordings of the behaviour.
A whale told a human to get out of the water? Hmm…
Here’s audio, via BBC:
