Also, ''ANY'' Rodent will squeak, even if it's a rodent that makes another noise, like guinea pigs. Guinea pigs have a rather wide range of sounds, but the closest thing to squeaking is when they wheek. And whereas a squeak is usually a small sound, a guinea pig's wheek is more like a loud yelling when they want attention. [[http://www.jackiesguineapiggies.com/guineapigsounds.html Here are some of the sounds guinea pigs make,]] and you can almost guarantee you will never hear them when a guinea pig is on-screen.

Added DiffLines:

* After films like ''Film/JurassicPark'' ,Dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals are almost always portrayed as uttering loud, thunderous monstrous roars and growls, obviously just to appear more awesome. Fossil evidence and research suggests dinosaurs might have sounded more [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_yyvTRVoZQ like crocodilians]] which can even produce infrasounds lower than 20 hertz. It is also believed they may have sounded like their living descendants, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dcQO6Zb8Eg the birds]], and some other scientists have proposed dinos may not have been able to vocalize ''at all''. This last theory is rather dubious, however, considering we have proof of noisy dinosaurs such as the hadrosaurs.

* ''VideoGame/TheWitness'': When walking around the jungle, you'll hear lots of bird sounds like chirps. Subverted in that, as you'll soon realize, they're actually artificial sounds created by speakers placed around the area.

*** Technically they're [[http://lotr.wikia.com/wiki/Crebain crebain]], which are described as similar to black crows. Being fictional birds there's no "correct" crebain call, but they still seem to make more noise than they should.

* Every owl in the world goes "hoot". Every single one. Except for the Screech Owl. They must certainly make a blood-curdling scream as advertised (see "My Cousin Vinnie").

* The Pacific tree frog is the only kind of frog that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcFKQKjv0-o very definitely goes "ribbit"]]. It's the frog that lives in California, which is why Hollywood believes frogs everywhere in the world go "ribbit". There are, technically, a few other amphibians [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries in America]] whose song sounds like ribbiting - but they're toads. Actual frogs tend to make [[http://allaboutfrogs.org/weird/general/songs.html chirping, burping, beeping, or trilling calls]].

The possibility that an enemy who attacks you in utter silence [[NothingIsScarier without saying a thing]], or who instead makes utterly inorganic noises like grinding gears, might actually be [[UncannyValley far, far more chilling]] never, ever comes up.
