Oh yeah, something I forgot.
Just because whatever it is doesn't have vocal cords doesn't mean it can't "talk". The question is, can whatever it is communicate in any sense
by making sounds? We use our vocal chords. Other things might make sounds in a different way. The operative word here is "sounds".
And just because whatever it is doesn't have ear drums doesn't mean it can't "hear". We "hear" because we sense our ear drums vibrating.
Certain ants can also "hear" by detecting their "knees" vibrating. Weird, but true.
So, that poor little spider, horrified at meeting the Grim Reaper, may have cried out in desperation, pleading for just one more chance at life. But,
we'll never know, as it was bludgeoned to death in one terrifying instant.
Nature is cold and unforgiving, and conceals her secrets well.
