I JUST REALIZED WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT DINOSAURS SOUND LIKE! THEY COULD’VE BEEN SPEAKING FLUENT GERMAN FOR ALL WE KNOW
it’s too early for this late night tumblr shit
GUTEN MORGEN HERR PTERODACTYL
I’m pretty sure science can take a fairly educated guess at what dinosaurs vocal chords were capable of? IDK Raychul, what do you think? Dinosaurs speaking german?
Well unfortunately vocal chords are made of soft tissue so there’s not much to go by as far as the fossil record goes, but we can reasonably look at modern reptiles and birds and make educated guess as to how they may have communicated. I’d put the chances of them speaking German at zero, though because they language in its earliest forms didn’t appear until something like 600AD. Additionally, the fine muscle control it takes to form words was definitely absent.
