There’s a big trend online right now claiming that whales can talk. Scientists have been studying their vocal abilities and have found that they can mimic the sounds made by humans. The video below provides some examples:


No. I’m sorry, but no. These whales are not talking. They are making whale noises. When the whale says “Three” it sounds like a fart after a night of eating Mexican food. Please do not spread this false information claiming whales can speak. These “scientists” are the equivilant of the crazy dog people who claim their dogs say “I love you” when they bark. You’re dogs may love you, but they are just barking. They’re dogs, they do not speak English. Much in the same way whales can only make whale noises.
