Frogs and the gift of the gab. Why some frogs croak and others don’t
Most adult male frogs make a lot of ruckus to draw attention to themselves. With voices that range across a very wide spectrum they seek to attract the mute females and to keep other males at bay.

Comparable in this respect to human beings they have found solutions for their communication problems that work.
