Killer whale learns to imitate human speech in world first Orca recorded mimicking English words like 'hello', 'bye bye' and 'one two'




Her name was Wikie, she was a show girl!

This does not surprise me. A member here the other day mentioned about Whales having stumps of limbs. We have a good idea of the evolutionary process, too, in fossil records:

whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com...


Snakes are not the only tetrapods (or even lizards) to have lost their legs. Whales have lost their hind legs (the front ones are now their flippers), and we have a pretty good fossil record of how they did so, thanks in large part to the work of Phil Gingerich of the University of Michigan Museum of Paleontology (see his great whale evolution site here) and his collaborators.


They went back to the sea. Evolution follows what suits best. Departures and returns as we weave through creation, all linked by the common thread of all creation: LIFE and its EVOLUTION. Evolution is constant revolution.

I made a track featuring Wikie the whale. I sent it to her and her helper, Amy.

Here is a free copy from Google drive if you would like it. It is just a chilled out gentle house music track I made yesterday. It is mp3 highest quality bit rate). It is a super blood blue moon mix, a rare event coinciding with a whale that talks to humans. Don't forget Jonah and the Whale.

WTF... Like for the first 20 or 30 seconds I was intrigued.. but then it trailed off into some 'beat'...

Is there a more convincing source...?

Otherwise
Boooo!

Heard this on BBC radio 4 couple of days ago, it was hilarious when the killer whale blew a raspberry

I read this story. It really doesn't mean anything until they can show that she understands what she's doing. Just to copycat doesn't mean she comprehends.

Just rote learning. It was taught with fish.

Didn't jesus feed his sheep with fish?

Seems legit..

(sorry rev, but you're not gonna listen to advice, so I'll just sing along)

Exactly. The whole point isn't about understanding. It's about mimicry, which is outstanding in it's own right. Understanding and comprehension are something separate...ala Koko.

SO you let a parrot type your posts here? That makes sense. Much more than us thinking a human is at the other end of your posts.

Just goes to show if you beat something hard enough it will learn to do some pretty impressive things.

I guess it demonstrates how smart we humans are when we can get animals to mimic our speech instead of figuring out their speech and actually talking with them.

Actually noindy, my parrot can't type, all it does is copy my voice
And the whale, it's doing the same thing, mimicking
It's Not really that exciting if you consider a parrot can do it as well

Well, maybe for you

Sorry I had to explain it to you

Oh, I get it, you throwing nasty insults
Pathetic noindy, but nothing I wouldn't expect from you

Hey Raggedy, where are you? You were supposed to start a thread with real science. ???????

Yeah I was mean to the Parrot. You still owe us a couple of papers read, and a new thread. Put that parrot to work

They learned 'fart noises' from routing kayak paddlers.

Seriously.
I'd a been crappin' kittens.

And the whale says 'Meow'...
