Did you know that dogs have vocal cords!?!

They do- they create sound much like humans do since they have lungs, larynxes and a vocal tract (throat, mouth, nose).

However dogs are unable to speak and form words because their brains aren't as developed as humans and speaking is difficult!

Next up... birds. Stay tuned.
