Bats growl like death metal singers and Mongolian throat singers

Many animals produce sound to communicate with each other, and bats are no exception. But bats are extreme when it comes to sound production.

Bats can produce a range of frequencies, also known as the vocal range, that far exceeds vertebrates, including humans. Researchers do not yet know the meaning of all their sounds and songs, but they are learning more and more about how all these sounds are made.

Now a new study in the journal PLOS Biology reports that for some sounds, bats use the same technique as human death metal singers and throat singing members of the Tuva people in Siberia and Mongolia. The study comes from a research team at University of Southern Denmark, led by Professor Coen Elemans, Department of Biology. The team has for the first time filmed what goes on in a bat's larynx when it produces sound.
