A beast calls in the distance. Hearing a low rumble, you might imagine the source will be an unholy cross between a wild boar and a chain saw. The message is unmistakable: I’m here, I’m huge and you can either come mate with me or stay out of my way.

Surprise! It’s just a cuddly little koala.

Now Dr. Garcia and Dr. Ravignani have applied the same idea to the animal world.

Among many species that cheat by willfully modulating their voices, previous experiments show a correlation: Many can also imitate sounds. Elephants, for example, can make sounds through their mouths or their long, stretchy trunks.

“Going through one way or the other, the characteristics will change drastically, and change the impression of body size,” Dr. Garcia says. “And it happens they are vocal learners, too.”
