Scientific researchers have determined that Harbour Seals can learn to change their voice to make them sound bigger, and that the behaviour is not a result of their anatomy.
Bigger animals usually have deeper (lower pitched) voices than smaller animals, but the Harbour Seal (Phoca vitulina) seems to be different. The Harbour Seal seems to be able to learn to change its voice.

It is found in the Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean, Baltic Sea, and the North Sea.Continue reading “RESEARCH: Harbour Seals can change their voice to make them sound bigger”
