Sounds of large herbivorus dinosaurs

Postby Andrewsaurchus101 » Sun Aug 14, 2016 3:30 pm

We know that large carnivorous dinosaurs probably made sounds similar to crocodilians and ratites and that smaller coelurosaurian theropods and smaller ornithischian dinosaurs may have made sounds like some birds do.

But what about large herbivorous dinosaurs?

Many probably used infrasound to communicate like large mammals do today and we know Some hadrosaurs would have sounded like eerie trumpets. But when the other large herbivores did make sounds, what would they sound like? could sauropods produce low-pitched, loud sounds like large whales? Would Ceratopsians snort almost like pigs? would Stegosaurids quack like ducks?!?!?!

So many possibilities!!! But based on the anatomy, would any of this be possible?!?!?!

I would say things like a rhino or an elephant. Just mega fauna in general really.

Imagine if large sauropods made low grunting sounds that literally shook the ground, or at least the foliage.

Not sure. They aren't mammals, so not really a rhino sound. BUT, then again, we don't have reptiles or birds like this alive today, so maybe they could have sounded similar to rhinos.

Carnivores on the other hand probably had some sort of mix between cassowary and crocodile. They are so much easier to figure out because they have close relatives in sort of similar niches around today. I wish herbivores were a bit easier.

When I said megafauna I meant like a low rumbling or grunts and snorts.
