What does the animal say?

Can you roar like a lion or bark like a dog? These are words we use in English for the sounds animals make, but in other languages the sounds are different. In English we say birds go tweet tweet, but in Greek they go tsiou tsiou. Bees buzz in English, but vzzz in Turkish. In English mice squeak, but in Swedish they go pip pip.

Go on a virtual tour of the Museum of Zoology with this video made in collaboration with the families of the Teddington early years group at Storey’s Field Centre, and make animal noises with them and our visitors to the Festival of Ideas 2019.
