Animals may have more to say for themselves than most people think, a new study suggests.

Scientists found that the monosyllabic call of the banded mongoose is structured in a similar way to vowels and consonants in human speech.

They believe the same is true for sounds made by other animals, including frogs and bats.

Back in the 1930s there actually was a talking mongoose.  He was called Jef, spoke English and lived with a family on the Isle of Man.
