Do Animals Talk?
Animals can not talk like humans, but they do communicate with us if they are reared by humans and loved, they understand our way of life.
Animals make a wide variety of sounds, from the musical song of a bird, the howl of a wolf, clicks, and whistles of a dolphin and contented purr of a cat, or the bark of a dog.
We had a dog called trout, which would draw his top lip back and closed his mouth, and chatter away moving his mouth trying to communicate with me like speech, (I was the only person he would communicate with like that,) making different sounds, from a dog, not a bark, that would come out off that mouth, but I never made out a word from that chatting, but the funny thing he only started doing that after I left the farm for our son to take over, I couldn't take trout where we were shifting to, I felt awful it was as if he was begging me to take him home with me, every time I visited my son.

Many animals use one or a number of sounds, as well as other signals, such as visual displays or scent to communicate.
Humans can only make a guess at interpreting these languages
I believe that all animals can talk -- it's just that we don't understand what they're saying, but they know how to respond to all that is going on around them.
If a newborn animal never hears their mother, like for instance, we had a sow that gave birth to eight piglets, she died the same day, I reared all of them myself in the house, and from day one, they heard my voice and the radio which was going beside the fire, which help keep them alive.
They used to sing like the radio they had heard all day, they were quite good too, they never learnt how to make the noise of a pig, they made noises which sounded like the speech of a human, sentences, not single words, although we never understood any words.
That is because they never heard their mother ointing or whatever you call what pigs do.
The piglets used to be taken out from the shed, when they got a little older, as they never needed to be by the fire, we would put them in a wheelbarrow, they would stay in it and take the ride back to the shed, after they had been feeding in a pen all day, and never did, one jump out of the wheelbarrow, they knew they were going back to their warm night lamp, in the shed, that kept them warm all night.
Talking Cockatiel "Pretty Bird" Conversation
Why can't animals talk like humans talk?
I asked this Question in Google.
Why can't animals talk like humans talk?
I liked this answer after a lot of researching for making this article.
A couple of reasons.
The larynx and mouth of most non-human animals differ enough physically that they are not able to reproduce the same sounds that humans use to communicate, just like we cannot mimic crocodile or elephant sounds perfect.
We may be able to make similar noises, but odds are that crocodiles or elephants would not recognize those sounds.
The second part has to do with brain size and function.
Humans have a hugely developed cerebral cortex, and many areas of this portion of the brain have been associated with language functions.
Even animals with brains of similar size do not have a similar layout and therefore, are not capable of the higher level communication functions that constitute human language.
The third part is cultural, for lack of a better word.
Almost every animal (and plant) communicates in some way.
Those forms of communication evolved under different pressures and conditions than human language and serve slightly different purposes.
Which is to say that animals may not talk like us because they don't need (or want) to.
Best Of Funny Talking Animals
I had a parrot talking many years ago
Have you ever had a conversation with a parrot?
Yes, male budgies can talk my father was very good at talking to them, I heard them responding many times and I could understand every word they were saying.
Why I said a male budgie talking, because my father was an expert at getting them to talk, but he never manage to get a female budgie to talk.
First of all, because the shape of their mouths.
Birds can be taught English to express certain things but they have no lips so it is difficult.
That's because they don't have vocal chords like we do.
Because of that, animals can breathe normally while they're eating.
They don't have to keep pausing to swallow.
