Guide to Animal Sounds on the Net

New and improved!

There are many samples of animal sounds on the World Wide Web and FTP sites, but finding them takes some patience and a bit of luck. It can be an interesting exercise to find particular animal sounds through search engines such as Alta Vista or HotBot, but it's much more convenient to have an index specifically for animal sounds. That's why I started this page. I've tried to group related animals together for convenience, and translate non-English ones to the best of my ability, but there will inevitably be some mistakes and discrepancies.
