The Hills Are Alive With the Sounds of — Dinosaurs?

Did dinosaurs make sounds? Looks that way, as we get some ideas from both paleontology and the Bible.

Just imagine...a couple of cowboys one night on the lone prairie, brewing up coffee at the campfire. There's a sound in the distance.

"Didja hear that?"


"Sounds like an iguanodon. He sounds mighty cranky."

"Nope. Just a hadrosaur. We're okay."

"You sure?"

"Yup. Boom boom acka lacka lacka boom."

But seriously, folks, do we have any ideas what dinosaurs may have sounded like? Yup.
Were dinosaurs noisy? Did dinosaurs honk nasally like Chewbacca in Star Wars? Did dinosaurs make moaning noises like mourning doves and owls, or did they wail like bagpipes?

Are there any clues about dinosaur sounds in Scripture or science? In both, actually. If this answer seems surprising it shouldn’t be, because both Scripture and science provide trustworthy evidence that dinosaurs were anything but silent.
