Edward Found Sounds: Animal Love

Found Sounds is a SoundCloud community feature focusing on some of the most weird and wonderful sounds that can be found on SoundCloud. Count on new installments with some of our favorite sounds each Tuesday!

It is the day of Saint Valentine, a day to cherish those we love and let it be known. Love is a universal language, spoken by humans and by animals. This week in Found Sounds we’re not going to get all soppy on you, we’re going to take a listen, and learn how it’s done in the animal kingdom. This week in Found Sounds we’ll be exploring the sounds of animal mating calls, the chat up lines and the woo’ing that goes on on Valentines day in the wild.

How would the story of “The Princess and the Frog” sound in real life? Let’s listen to those croaky creatures call out to their princess.

Some of the wild’s most vicious creatures have their soft side too! Caught in Bradenton, Florida, Bob Duthie recorded the sounds of an aligator mating call.

Now here’s something I bet you didn’t expect to stumble across today, this week, or even this year. The final mating call is from the friendly badger.

We hope this Valentines we were able to entertain you with the stranger side of love. Whoever you’re spending your day with, remember at least you’ll be treated with wine and chocolate rather than these sounds of the wild!

That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.
