[ # ] The singing seal!
June 22nd, 2019 under Animals, Star Wars

If someone told you that a seal could sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, you would be that is cool. However, Zola can sing that nursery rhyme and the Star Wars theme. Now that is so out of this world that it is in a galaxy far far away.

According to CBS News, Zola and two other seals, Janice and Gandalf, were taught how to mimic sounds. While Zola is the singer, the other two can mimic vowels. Dr. Amanda Stansbury and Professor Vincent Janik of the Scottish Oceans Institute at the University of St Andrews in Scotland taught them how to speak in hopes that it could “help shed light on speech disorders.”

Pretty impressive. I cannot wait to have a conversation with a seal. Hopefully, that will happen in our lifetime. If it does, then what do you say to them? Polly, want a cracker, is already taken. They will probably be like stop giving us balls to balance on our nose. Then they would tell us that they are so much better than us as they take over the world. Maybe it is not a good thing that we are teaching seals to use their voices?
