What do animals say in Japanese? (Quiz)

1 Jul

In English, frogs say “ribbit“, dogs say “bow-wow“, cats say “meow“, pigs say “oink-oink“…foxes, though, don’t have a sound in English.

How about in Japanese?

The sounds every animal makes sounds totally different to Japanese ears!

Take this quiz to see if you can guess what are common animal sounds in Japan:

      It’s not so easy. Animal sounds are so different in every language.

    This was so fun!!! I pretty much failed, but that just means I learned a lot. LOL. It would be great to see more quizzes like this! By the way, I only got the one for _____ correct because Hello Kitty’s friend was KeroKeroKeropi!

      Thank you. I made a new quiz here.
      And, yes, the “Keroppi” character got his name because ______ say “Kero Kero” in Japanese.

      That’s not bad! I don’t know animal sounds in countries I’ve never lived in.

    Huh. Can’t submit my answers. Anyway, the question about the fox got a song started in my head. What does the fox say? Ring-ding-ding-ding-ding-a-ding-a-ding.

        100%. But I knew them all anyway. Been in Japan too long to not know, I think.

        Yeah, most of my site visitors aren’t in Japan … this quiz is aimed to them.

        Thanks for taking it though … and for commenting.
