Do we know what dinosaurs sounded like?

The Jurassic Park roars are pretty sick, but I know they’re not real. I’m just especially wondering how accurate “roar” would be to describe the sounds dinosaurs made.

In a word, no, but scientists can make educated guesses. The closest living relatives of the dinosaurs are crocodilians and birds, and we can look to the ways they vocalize to give us a hint.

Alligators and crocodiles use their larynxes to communicate—they’ll hiss, groan, and yes, roar (here’s a compilation of their sounds). Dinosaurs might have had larynxes, but since those don’t fossilize, it’s impossible to know for sure. Birds, meanwhile, use an organ called a syrinx, which seems to have evolved after dinosaurs. That might indicate that dinos couldn’t vocalize at all, which would be a bummer.

However, there’s also a possibility that they evolved a unique way to vocalize. For example, based on studying their skulls and inner ears, some have theorized that hadrosaurs used their crests to bellow at each other.

So, they probably didn’t roar, but bellowing can be pretty cool too, right?

Isn't it possible that today's crocodiles have evolved much differently making it erroneous to speculate based on what is deduced from todays specie?

Actually, dinosaurs had not larynxes, but a syrinx. A syrinx is found in birds and it breathes in air to make a specific sound. As for the larynx, it takes more muscles to operate and breathes out air to make a sound. The truth is, since dinosaurs had syrinxes, they couldn't roar at all! Take something like a velociraptor for example. In the wild it would probably puff up its chest and make something like a deep, bellowing sound to attract females. As for the tyrannosaurus, it didn't make sounds at all, but a long, loud vibration from its chest!

We do not know if other dinosaurs are capable of vocalization or not, and no idea what they may sound like if they do. In general bigger animals have lower-pitched voices. So dinosaurs may have low-pitched noises like bulls, elephants, or whales but not high-pitched sounds like cats, dogs, mice, birds, or dolphins. But we have confirm that dinosaur can sound birds or amphibians.

Paleontologists may never know for sure what kinds of sounds dinosaurs made, but most believe that these animals did make noises. Why? Clues in dinosaur skulls tell them so. Some, like "Lambeosaurus," had crests on top of their heads that probably filled with air when the animal breathed. As air was pushed through these crests, they likely made a deep bellowing sound similar to a horn.

Did dinosaurs communicate? Most paleontologists think so. Like modern-day birds and reptiles, dinosaurs probably made noises to signal that they were looking for a mate, that there was danger, or that they were hurt. Babies may have made sounds to let adults know they needed food or were in trouble.

While paleontologists have not found any evidence to suggest dinosaurs have external ears, the skulls and brain casts of certain dinosaurs indicate they had a good sense of hearing and the ability to hear both high- and low-frequency sounds. All of which mean their world could have been very noisy indeed!

Possible Dinosaur Sounds :

Bellows

Honks

Moos

Squeaks

Roars

Snarls

Snorts

Grunts

Hisses

Rumbles

Hoots

I hope you get the answer :)

Because we only know dinosaurs from fossils, we don't know for sure. Mammals that use scent marking generally have a good sense of smell, while most dinosaurs didn't. Dinosaurs' descendants, birds, and their closest relatives, crocodiles, don't scent mark, so dinosaurs probably didn't either.
