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?

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!
