Goats Accents, Researchers found the animals develop their own speaking voice when they move away from their siblings and mingle with others.
They found that a goats’ “accent’ changed as they grew older and moved in different groups, disproving claims that their voices were entirely genetic.
The team, from Queen Mary University of London, said their findings are the first to suggest that most mammals can develop an accent from their surroundings.
Previously, only a select group of mammals including humans, elephants and dolphins were thought to be able to pick up an accent.
Experts assumed that other species’ “voices” were dictated by genetics and not their surroundings.
