As kids, all of us were fascinated by animal sounds and played around goofily by imitating them. But that doesn’t mean we still don’t get fascinated by them. The world of animals is so vast that every little thing about them is intriguing. From making adorable squeaks to brave and majestic roars, these animals have them all. Let’s look at some of the funniest animal sounds and noises that will definitely put a smile on your face.
Dolphins are very vocal. They produce whistles and sounds that resemble moans, trills, grunts, squeaks, and creaking doors.
Koalas are very cute and adorable but the sounds they make will definitely surprise you. Male koalas produce unusually deep bellowing or grunting calls. They have a special vocal organ that is not present in any other mammal. They also make sounds like snarls, squeaks and screams.
Did you know that Alpacas hum? If not, don’t worry, it surprised many of us too! Alpacas hum like how a cat purrs. Their hums can range in tone and urgency, and are produced to convey all kinds of different emotions.

There’s a whole hidden dimension to hippopotamus sounds, quite literally below the surface. Hippos make sounds that are somewhat similar to the noises made by dolphins. They make honking noises which are like deep laughs. Hippos grunt, groan, growl, roar and make loud wheezing sounds. They also make chuffing noises.
Lemurs communicate using sight, smell and sound. They make sounds of shrieks, grunts, barks, moos, eeps, and trills.
Moose make sounds for various reasons but usually it’s only when they are arguing or looking for a mate. Most of the time, they moan. This sound is usually known as a ‘rut’.
