Animal Onomatopoeia in Other Languages

Animal onomatopoeia: Oink, meow, woof, bark, ribbit ribbit, neighhhhhh, bzzzzzzzzz are NOT universal! Check how other languages hear a dog bark, a cat meow, a pink oink, a frog croak, a horse neigh, and a bee buzz. I still think “cockadoodoodledoo” is the most fantastic though.
