Baby Crocodiles Sound Exactly Like Space Invaders With Laser Beams

When you think of cute baby animal noises, crocodiles are hardly the first or even second thing that would come to mind. In fact, what do crocodile babies even sound like you may wonder? I always assumed that the miniature reptilian predators would be silent – much like their larger counterparts as they quietly wait for their unsuspecting prey in the water. As it turns out, little crocodiles actually do make a sound – and it’s quite entertaining as well. They sound like something out of a sci-fi film. We’ve heard of elk that sound like the Nazgul in “Lord of the Rings,” as well as seals who sound like spaceships, and now we can add baby crocodiles to the list of sci-fi sounding critters.

Not going to lie, I have watched this Instagram clip several times because not only is it weirdly cute, but I still am in shock that they actually make that sound.

Like I said, most of us probably wouldn’t have ever thought that crocodile babies would be capable of making any sound for a start – and least of all, that one. If anyone is looking to make a low budget sci-fi film apparently all you need is a tub full of baby crocodiles to get your sound effects from. It reminds us a bit of the 70’s game, “Space Invaders.”

The videos were taken from Laughing Squid and then posted to Instagram by Brad Valle – who appears to be employed by Dragonwood Wildlife Conservancy. Valle has been described by Dragonwood as an “incredibly dedicated and caring keeper.” His animal-handling skills are demonstrated throughout the video as he whispers little encouraging words to the reptilian babies as well as exclaims, “crocodile kisses.”

That sounds frighteningly adorable – especially since we all know how menacing they’ll look when they grow up.

Besides their sci-fi sounding noises, who else has been touched by the cuteness that is a hoard of baby crocodiles? I never knew they could be this adorable. What do you think of the little sounds they make? Let us know!
