I just realized I've never heard how Alligator sounds before this. Truly Interesting
It's usually the last thing a person hears.
He's trying to reach out to you for your Car's extended warranty
I always thought it was just a movie effect.
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)
Pew pew pew
Cutest sound. It makes me smile.
Sounds like grandpa from toilet
Same. I didn’t think they made sounds.
Never seen jumanji?
Thats a fucking dinosaur
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.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
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)
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.
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)
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.
TIL the most powerful sound of the T-Rex Yell mix came from a freaked out baby elephant
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.
Blowhole you say
This. The last time I heard that noise it was a T-rex standing outside a command truck.
Yeah, sounded familiar to me too :D
we got lied the whole time
And scary as well
As if he wasn’t scary enough already
A cross between Hollywood's answer to a T-Rex growl, and a backed-up toilet trying to flush.
This is just the average noise you hear after you get sick from taco bell.
An alligator bellows for similar reasons to a lions Chuffing. To attract a mate and display dominance
I can take him.
Aw, so he’s flirting?
The dinosaur cat
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.
Nature photographers have balls of steel
Or maybe they were at the Alligator Farm (it’s in Florida) and a sort of zoo for alligators.
If you hear it closely, that's the sound of your soul leaving your body
Did he swallow a lawnmower?
I think your lawnmower is broken
No, he's got one underneath the water, and he's trying to start it. Problem is the line is flooded.
That explains his look of consternation.
That’s just to distract people before he eats them?
The Disneyland animatronics are looking pretty realistic
Unreal Engine do be awesome
My son said, why is he doing that? Anybody can answer this?
Lady gators think it’s sexy.
How am I supposed to explain that?!?? Lol!
When two gators love each very much…..
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
Just absolutely horrific
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.
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
I realize now why I am single at least! Haha!
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
Same, my snoring has been described as “monsters fighting”
Am I the only one who finds it kind of cute? (Upvote for "yes", or if you find it cute too.)
He kinda cute
New cuddle buddy
he is cute that first shot zooming out, his big ole snout & his wittle eyes close together.
We found the lady gator
You should contact him, hes available for mating.
I don’t speak prehistoric
What's going on with the water behind him, is the alligator vibrating when it does this or something?
Yeah, it's awesome how the water behind him shudders as he's about to growl.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
yea. It is so weird to hear that being produced by an animal. Or feel it more accurately.
I lived on a waterway in Florida for a few years. You would hear this quite a bit.
I actually thought he was cute! Until he made that sound oh good lord lol terrifying!!!
You would be like: *Oh stop it you*
I felt my balls crawl up into my body when it made the first sound
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?
A far cry from the cute Lazer sounds they make as babies!!
Sounds like a lion underwater. Real cool. Also real terrifying.
A demon of the ancient world. Your weapons are of no use here.

I found it oddly tranquil, that's some ancient sounds.
This is a mating call, btw.
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
David Attenborough taught me this! lol
Could be V8 or even V12 we are talking here
We be out here thinking who trying to make a gator into a car
Well, I am going to the Everglades tomorrow. I guess I know what to listen for now Hopefully, they won't be so big.
Let me play you the sound of my people
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.
The rainforest cafe was telling the truth
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.
I wouldn't stand that close when he's making his mating calls.
Ol boy is putting out the vibe
Ragazzi, finalmente abbiamo capito il coccodrillo come fa
How can you get so close to him with a camera?
Yikes!!! That’s powerful right there.
Here's to you if you're still alive 🍻
That is terrifying.
Sounds like a flushing toilet
I think I make the same sound in the toilet after taco bell
He wants to be friends.
He is friendly...until he isn't
Sounds like someone sitting on the toilet and letting it rip after a night of mexican food.
That's a croc! :D
Sounds like the old toilets that never clogged up.
This sounded exactly how I imagined it would sound
Alligators are dinosaurs Dwight!
👈 I'll be over there changing my underwear...
He's basically a dinosaur, but those dopey little eyes aren't scaring me.
At first you hear the little bubbles and you’re like “awe that’s cute” then he growls and 😳
By does the water vibrate? Is it because of the growl or is another mechanism of defense
Sobek smiles upon you
Sounds the public bathroom.
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.
Ahh the cute little fella is just purring. He's OK.
My phone is shaking at each grunt (or is it a mating call??🤔)
Sounds like my sleeping girlfriend
My gods, i love the water vibrations! What a cute dino
Sounds like my ex-GF's mother
Lovely singing voice
Finally we solved that mistery!
That's exactly what I expected it to sound like.
Mf sound like the beginning of a boss battle
It's cool to think that this is pretty close to hearing dinosaurs from millions of years ago. And also pants-shitingly terrifying.
This sound means he’s a happy boi
Water kitty purring
If you close your eyes you can hear a man's asshole being blown up by taco bell
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.
just like my 350lb ass after 18” pizza and family size coke
He’s tryna fuck
"Me personally, I wouldn't let that slide"
A sound of a beast
I’m so sorry but all I hear are farting sfx
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.
It sounds hollow.
Omg they turned Skyrim's Dragonborn DLC Apocrypha sound #2 into a real thing!
Sir this is a Chili’s
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?
bro means business
Sounds like my exwife snoring!
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
I'm gonna guess that camera was attached to a really long stick.
I can feel your scent Batman!
Why does that remind me of my family members at night?
I wanna slap the round thing on the bottom of its jaws
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.
So is it possible to make my lovely 4 cylinder Celica sound like that at about 5800 rpm
I kinda like it….
Yep...NOPE def jurassic park feels
he got that rona
How did the person get it to do that and not get also eaten? Is it a mating thing? SO many questions!
Thanks, I’m fine.
He need some braces
When it's cold and your Harley won't start.
Is that a happy sound or I'm gonna keal you then I'll be happy sound?
... He's got all them teeth with no tooth brush
Sounds like a purr!
That’s what my toilet sounds like when it’s broken
Alligator for “Hey ladies!”
Sounds just like my car when it doesn't start.
What a cutie making noises for the camera!!
About what I would expect a dinosaur to sound like
You're gonna want to clean that carburettor out. Gets gunk built up in it.
i would fucking shit my pants
I wonder how he filmed this? 😅 Camera on a Stick?
Go Pro on his head
Joke aside, I don’t know haha
Sounds like an old pick up that's been flooded
Sounds like a old grass cutter
He tryna smash
Sounds like a cross between a wet fart and the last bit of water going down the drain.
Sounds like a broken toilet
sounds like my dad in the bathroom
Awesome animal that sounds the way it should
Sounds like me on the toilet
Tubas make them horny
Sounds like the 9 tails
I need that as my white noise
“He don’t bite”
Sounds EXACTLY like the sand shark from subnautica
