Words of Comfort: Snakes don't talk.



“This isn't a Jungle Book. Snakes don't talk.” Nick Murray

Do animals have a language? Do they communicate (talk) to each other? My dog shows me that he understands English when he obeys me, when I speak English. He also tells me (in his own language) when he wants something to eat or drink.  Every night, at around 6:00 PM, he goes into the back yard and speaks with another dog  a couple of doors down (in the language of dogese).  The dog he speaks to him always answers.  Do elephants or dolphins have a language in which they speak to each other? How about whales? Of course they do.  Parrots manage to talk without vocal cords.

How ironic, that people who believe that they are animals mock the thought that any animal could talk.
