I just realized I've never heard how Alligator sounds before this. Truly Interesting


RobinsShaman

It's usually the last thing a person hears.


randomguy2322

He's trying to reach out to you for your Car's extended warranty


ARneophyte

I always thought it was just a movie effect.


Kairain

I don't have the clip but check YouTube for baby Crocs or alligators in a tub. Mini might saber battle. [Here it is] (https://youtube.com/shorts/LcHE5mxFVpE?feature=share)


Hellboundroar

Pew pew pew


Kairain

Cutest sound. It makes me smile.


onlylilybeth

Sounds like grandpa from toilet


Capn_Cake

Same. I didn’t think they made sounds.


amonarre3

Never seen jumanji?


Capn_Cake

Nah.


Basil2theSequel

Thats a fucking dinosaur


JamesOldie

Found out today that whilst many animals on Earth today are decended from animals alive in the Jurassic period, Crocodiles have only evolved 24 different species since then. Whereas other animals have evolved thousands of different species to the extent their ancestors are long extinct. That is to say that Crododiles having so few variations is an indication that they've not really done too much evolving since that time. Crocodilldiian species of today are pretty much exactly what they'd have looked like back then. They are literally dinosaurs.


Deanuzz

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.


Delicious-Gap1744

That's a bit misleading, crocodilians have diversified a lot several times in the past, it's just that surviving crocodilians fill similar semi aquatic nichés everywhere. [Before dinosaurs became dominant crocodilians actually evolved into some very dinosaur-like forms](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QsmV34Co32c&ab_channel=PBSEons) [Some crocodilians went fully aquatic](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vgqs_9BBX10&ab_channel=PBSEons) [There were also hooved land crocs after the extinction of the dinosaurs.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmdcewIjXi0&ab_channel=PBSEons) [This land-croc would've come into contact with humans in Australia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quinkana)


freakbird15

I wouldnt say exactly because crocs back then were much bigger and were probably more active on land but id say the sound of these guys are unlike any animal on earth.


Delicious-Gap1744

Only a **very** distant relative of them if we want to get technical. Birds on the other hand are actual living dinosaurs. That's not a metaphor or something, they're literally in the group of animals called dinosaurs. [Most up to date depictions also have many theropod dinosaurs looking a whole lot like birds.](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dromaeosauridae#/media/File:Dromaeosaurs.png)


astroNerf

The [sound of the T-Rex from Jurassic Park is a mix of different things](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M0iSCfmIdqg), including alligators. There's also lions, elephants and whale blowhole sounds in there, too. **Edit:** u/Lunatic_Dpali's reply link below is a Rick Roll.


todellagi

TIL the most powerful sound of the T-Rex Yell mix came from a freaked out baby elephant


astroNerf

TIE fighter sounds from Star Wars include full-grown elephants. Light sabers include the hum from old cathode ray (TV) tubes. Darth Vader's breathing, as I understand it, is from recording normal breathing through a scuba tank regulator. [Blaster sounds come from striking high-tension guy wires.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fl0wIdGxfbQ) It's amazing what semi-ordinary sounds end up being used for sci-fi and fantasy sounds.


BTBAM797

Blowhole you say


[deleted]

This. The last time I heard that noise it was a T-rex standing outside a command truck.


AbbreviationsWide331

Yeah, sounded familiar to me too :D


Legitimate_Cress1631

we got lied the whole time


Love_God551

And scary as well


Morgentau7

As if he wasn’t scary enough already


davieb22

A cross between Hollywood's answer to a T-Rex growl, and a backed-up toilet trying to flush.


Free4Alt

This is just the average noise you hear after you get sick from taco bell.


rikkuaoi

An alligator bellows for similar reasons to a lions Chuffing. To attract a mate and display dominance


Morgentau7

**Dominance accomplished**


Detriumph

I can take him.


Morgentau7

To prom?


StonedEcho

Phrasing!


evoltoastt

Aw, so he’s flirting?


I-hate-jeffbezos

Fucking terrifying


Evolving_Spirit123

The dinosaur cat


Morgentau7

Pspspspsps


Eldi_Bee

Props to the person filming. Even if they aren't themselves getting that close, I'd be shaking both trying to not drop the camera, and not to invoke the wrath of the gator and lose it that way. I'm picturing super steady hands leaning out as far as possible with a selfie stick, or risking thousands of dollars on equipment for a sturdy clear shot next to an animal with a huge bite force.


Morgentau7

Nature photographers have balls of steel


b2change

Or maybe they were at the Alligator Farm (it’s in Florida) and a sort of zoo for alligators.


incredula

Murder log


randomguy2322

If you hear it closely, that's the sound of your soul leaving your body


gdmfsobtc

Did he swallow a lawnmower?


Morgentau7

I think your lawnmower is broken


imagination_machine

No, he's got one underneath the water, and he's trying to start it. Problem is the line is flooded.


gdmfsobtc

That explains his look of consternation.


C4-20eh

That’s just to distract people before he eats them?


_Beee

The Disneyland animatronics are looking pretty realistic


Morgentau7

Unreal Engine do be awesome


Nemofound

My son said, why is he doing that? Anybody can answer this?


Knotgreg

Lady gators think it’s sexy.


davieb22

Can confirm.


Nemofound

How am I supposed to explain that?!?? Lol!


-Cryptoknight

When two gators love each very much…..


i-fing-love-games

you see the water bouncing up and down on its back ? pretty sure the vibrations and the spund is territorial marking or competing with other males


MadBoatersCooter

Just absolutely horrific


CosmiKatie

Just recently started using this app that tracks and records my sleep after several exes over the years has mentioned I sleep talk and snore a lot. I never thought it could’ve been that bad..🤷🏻‍♀️ - this kind of sounds like what I had 3 hours of recordings of the first morning I started using the app.


Morgentau7

Same haha I make weird noises, sometimes I talk gibberish, or just random words. Its really weird that we don’t realize this if we are single and there is no one to complain about our noise lol


CosmiKatie

I realize now why I am single at least! Haha!


Morgentau7

Oh god no, I didnt ment it that way! hahaha But maybe you got a point. Maybe I need a gf that sleeps like a stone lol


[deleted]

Same, my snoring has been described as “monsters fighting”


whisp777

Am I the only one who finds it kind of cute? (Upvote for "yes", or if you find it cute too.)


conconbar93

He kinda cute


Morgentau7

New cuddle buddy


Pizzadiamond

he is cute that first shot zooming out, his big ole snout & his wittle eyes close together.


nimcraft

We found the lady gator


Time_Card_4095

You should contact him, hes available for mating.


[deleted]

[удалено]


Morgentau7

I don’t speak prehistoric


annonimity2

What's going on with the water behind him, is the alligator vibrating when it does this or something?


Hokieshibe

Yeah, it's awesome how the water behind him shudders as he's about to growl.


mousewrites

Yeah, is it when he takes the air in, like sucking a breath before a shout? Or is the first part of the noise just so low we can't hear it but the water vibrates?


Hokieshibe

I was thinking it was probably the latter. The way the water is churning like that makes it look like a vibration is passing through it to me. I know big cats can make infrasonic sounds in their roars. Wouldn't surprise me if these beasties could either. Of course, I'm not remotely knowledgeable.


mousewrites

Unless a more knowledgeable person steps up with a better answer, I'm sticking to the "we can't actually hear how scary this is" answer. Case closed.


Time_Card_4095

it's actually way more impressive in reality. It travels real far and your body vibrates when you are near them. You feel the sound traveling inside your body. its weird and freaky. and yes the water "dances" due to the vibrations. look at this video the water looks like a speaker playing loud bass. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ul4t6Fv8GWo


BigTwigs1981

Their rumble works like a subwoofer. its more felt than heard, with the lowest tones below the audible range the human ear can pick up.


Time_Card_4095

yea. It is so weird to hear that being produced by an animal. Or feel it more accurately.


BigTwigs1981

I lived on a waterway in Florida for a few years. You would hear this quite a bit.


TimelyTea93

I actually thought he was cute! Until he made that sound oh good lord lol terrifying!!!


Morgentau7

You would be like: *Oh stop it you*


CitizenSunshine

I felt my balls crawl up into my body when it made the first sound


Proper_Goat_4390

water that vibrates when he takes his breath (well I think) do you think it's sub-bass that generates this phenomenon of water vibrating on his back?


Time_Card_4095

yes


Gravja

A far cry from the cute Lazer sounds they make as babies!!


[deleted]

Sounds like a lion underwater. Real cool. Also real terrifying.


BTBAM797

A demon of the ancient world. Your weapons are of no use here.

mr_abiLLity

Terrifucking


Laabe

I found it oddly tranquil, that's some ancient sounds.


jennzillahhhh

This is a mating call, btw.


Shift_6

Finally someone else versed in the language of the gator. (I’m from FL) I’m over here worried about the camera person getting violated by this unit of a reptile


jennzillahhhh

David Attenborough taught me this! lol


Big_Werewolf7567

Could be V8 or even V12 we are talking here


LFGR_THE_Thing

We be out here thinking who trying to make a gator into a car


Pining4Michigan

Well, I am going to the Everglades tomorrow. I guess I know what to listen for now Hopefully, they won't be so big.


Morgentau7

Let me play you the sound of my people


Time_Card_4095

listen for it but it's very rare. early in the morning is your best chance. but since we have been getting a bit of rain now the gators are likely to be more spread out.


ColossusOfKop

So wet


MysteriousDave9

The rainforest cafe was telling the truth


mpritc1019

In high school I worked on Kiawah Island. We would have to go retrieve bike rentals for the bike shop sometimes. Although Kiawah has a ton of alligators, I never knew they make this sound. Apparently they do it during mating season. Anyway, I’m pulling this bike out of the bushes and hear that sound. Straight out of Jurassic Park. I turn and see a very large alligator right behind me. I put the bike between her and I and got tf out of there. Also once saw an alligator come up on shore to eat a small dog on a leash. The owner fought for a moment but when the gator did his death roll thing, she had to let go of the leash. It was rough.


policelife

I wouldn't stand that close when he's making his mating calls.


firstgen59

Ol boy is putting out the vibe


asdegolego

Ragazzi, finalmente abbiamo capito il coccodrillo come fa


MrSparr0w

How can you get so close to him with a camera?

Yikes!!! That’s powerful right there.


Bubbly-Discourse

Here's to you if you're still alive 🍻


slinky1969

That is terrifying.


muzi403

Sounds like a flushing toilet


Miso-soup623

I think I make the same sound in the toilet after taco bell


Juan_Beegrat

He wants to be friends.


janman27929

He is friendly...until he isn't


Cyber2354

Sounds like someone sitting on the toilet and letting it rip after a night of mexican food.


noname_yet2077

Gassy doggo


TelosKairos

wooshifgaymf

This sounded exactly how I imagined it would sound


Mesheybabes

Alligators are dinosaurs Dwight!


TrueHarlequin

👈 I'll be over there changing my underwear...


matrixpudding

He's basically a dinosaur, but those dopey little eyes aren't scaring me.


krissykat122

At first you hear the little bubbles and you’re like “awe that’s cute” then he growls and 😳


MrMustache2021

By does the water vibrate? Is it because of the growl or is another mechanism of defense


imbennn

Sobek smiles upon you


PerryPlays_

Sounds the public bathroom.


SnitterGrits

I’m pretty sure they only do that when they’re trying to find another alligator to screw. I’ve only seen them do this on tv.


jeezontorst

Ahh the cute little fella is just purring. He's OK.


gatorgumbo

My phone is shaking at each grunt (or is it a mating call??🤔)


nitr04

Sounds like my sleeping girlfriend


Jkerb_was_taken

My gods, i love the water vibrations! What a cute dino


anhsonhmu

Sounds like my ex-GF's mother


Dizzy-Concentrate284

Lovely singing voice


Ogami-kun

Finally we solved that mistery!


Calaban007

That's exactly what I expected it to sound like.


b00tycrack_snAck

Mf sound like the beginning of a boss battle


fappyday

It's cool to think that this is pretty close to hearing dinosaurs from millions of years ago. And also pants-shitingly terrifying.


ReliableLiar

This sound means he’s a happy boi


JBfromIT

Water kitty purring


Niken272

If you close your eyes you can hear a man's asshole being blown up by taco bell


cloverthewonderkitty

I was at the zoo with a child I was babysitting. There was a walk-through indoor exhibit where folks could walk on a heightened path and below there was a water exhibit, including an alligator. We were looking at some fish on the lower level when we heard this sound. Some primal instinct took over in my body; the hair on my arms and back of my neck stood up, I got that pit of my stomach feeling, grabbed my lil buddy close and all I could think was, "RUN!" We were the only people in the exhibit, so that def upped the creepy factor.


bbien12

just like my 350lb ass after 18” pizza and family size coke


JohnnyHash92

He’s tryna fuck


Shinobiverse

"Me personally, I wouldn't let that slide"


slavicturk

A sound of a beast


evolution-has-failed

I’m so sorry but all I hear are farting sfx


Funky_Farkleface

This is the VERY NEARBY sound I heard when going outside in the pitch black after a Cat 5 hurricane in the FL swamp. It did not give me a nice feeling.


El_Morro

It sounds hollow.


not_from_Singapore

Omg they turned Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC Apocrypha sound #2 into a real thing!


WealthsquadSean

Sir this is a Chili’s


Ipsos_Logos

So where does the air go? This dumb, do they have lungs or does their belly fill with air like a burp? Or something different?


enchoosar

bro means business


Livid-Relationship-2

Sounds like my exwife snoring!


Jeremy-132

Even more interesting is that alligators do this to attract a mate. Notice the thing it's doing with the water on its back? You are very sexy to this alligator


Murtch5000

I'm gonna guess that camera was attached to a really long stick.


Carlayd

I can feel your scent Batman!


Crabby648

Why does that remind me of my family members at night?


galaticB00M12

I wanna slap the round thing on the bottom of its jaws


Time_Card_4095

The crazy thing is that you can feel the vibrations going through your body even at a fair distance. I sometimes would hear them doing this but be far enough from them that i dint know where exactly they were. It's usually just the big male that has thrown all the other smaller males out of his area that does this call the ladies.


MedievaLime

So is it possible to make my lovely 4 cylinder Celica sound like that at about 5800 rpm


Recluse_18

I kinda like it….


Tell_Amazing

Yep...NOPE def jurassic park feels


roughback

he got that rona


Bubbie67

How did the person get it to do that and not get also eaten? Is it a mating thing? SO many questions!


blinkysmurf

Thanks, I’m fine.

He need some braces


ctizborah
