Answer ( 1 )


    Atlantic Ocean

    The researchers at the University of St Andrews in Scotland have found that gray seals can copy the human sounds of songs and words including “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.” The study showed that three trained seals were able to imitate parts of favorite tunes. The study gave the researchers a better understanding of the evolution of vocal learning and human language development. The gray seals can be a new model to study speech disorders since they use their vocal tracts the same way as humans. The grey seal is found in the North Atlantic Ocean on both shores. In the family Phocidae, these are the larger seals which are commonly referred to as “true seals” or “earless seals.” It is the only species classified in the genus Halichoerus.
