Animals have their way of communication.

Animals have ways of exchanging information too. Bees dance and tell other bees where to find food. Elephants make sounds that humans can't hear. Whales sing songs. Monkeys use their faces to show anger and love. But this is nothing compared to what people can do. WE have language, about 6000 languages, in fact. We can write poetry, tell jokes, make promises, explain, persuade, tell the truth, or tell lies. What do have to say on this? Let's share more.

Agreed that we have been bestowed with better communicative skills than the animal kingdom and I think that's why we are the ones responsible for maintaining the ecological balance , but we often act contrary to what should be expected of us.If we use our wisdom and communicative abilities to better understand the wilds (and even each other),perhaps then there is a better chance of prolonging the lifespan of our planet.Inspite of being so wise ,we are paving the pathway to our own destruction by ignoring the warnings of our ecosystem.I feel we don't justly use the unique talents that the humans have while animals manage a lot even with their seemingly inferior communicative skills.

I was watching animal planet the other night. Those money like animal cans do a lot of talking. They growl real load before the trample the other one. They lay down the law and let the other know. I will stomp all over your head. They just jump on the womans back side and have a quickie. I was truly amazed watching that show.

My dogs bark. Their barking is a real language. They do communicate. I know what they are saying when they bark. All dogs make in the same situation the same noises. Already little puppies do. If one listens long enough to barking one does understand the language. People often think barking is just making noise. This is not true.
