Cats tend to be quiet unless they want something and the same goes for horses and dogs, though they will whinny and bark if they are excited by something. Rats and mice rarely make human-audible noises. Owls only hoot to announce they've claimed such and such a spot and the same generally goes for every bird's song, every canine's howl, and so on. An animal who has been hurt in all likelihood will not react vocally ''at all'', except for maybe one brief yelp at the moment of injury -- it's [[EverythingTryingToKillYou too dangerous]] to announce your incapacitation by sitting there crying for aid. And all the fictional predators who [[CallingYourAttacks let out a blood-curdling roar/scream/whatever]] as they stalk their prey are idiots, because the whole point of a roar is to let you know that something big and dangerous is nearby and you'd better run.

* Documentaries are prone to putting in noises that aren't there in the actual footage in an attempt to be "more interesting". One example is a Smithsonian work that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCQrEdhbGro featured Black Mambas being hatched]], complete with random hissing.

** In the fifteenth Pokemon movie, contrasting its hissing cry in the games, Kyurem's roar has a bit of a leopard's growl in it.

* In Fictionland, ALL [[BearsAreBadNews bears]] ''almost'' always sound just [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGG616qvxBI like this]]. Even species that don't utter roars, such as the Black Bear, are given this treatment. Those sounds were originally performed by Creator/FrankWelker himself mixed along with breathing and panting sounds from dogs. Real brown bears, funnily enough, sound [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61Yz4Ay14u8 like lawn mowers]], apparently.
** There's been a few aversions to the rule, however. Bears from Disney's ''Disney/BrotherBear'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' use a different set of stock noises than the usual one. Same goes from Mor'du and Queen Elinor's bear form in ''WesternAnimation/Brave''. Mor'du instead utters lots of big cat growls and snarls, while Bear!Elinor mostly makes moaning and bellowing sounds. She does make the same generic breathing sounds as most bears and also briefly utters the usual roar sound while clashing against Mor'du at the film's climax, though.

ocelots and ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' use lynx have their own unique vocalization, which can sound rather scary on their own terms.

Mor'du instead utters lots of cheetah make standard feline vocalization, whether it be big cat growls and snarls, while Bear!Elinor mostly makes moaning and bellowing sounds. She does roars or cougar screams, cheetahs are well known for having very.......unconventional vocalizations for a feline ; they chirp like birds, bark/yap like foxes, make the same generic breathing sounds as most bears high pitched calls and also briefly utters the usual roar "churrm" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WW8dKk6tDEg
* Hyenas barking, howling, yelping, growling or whimpering, as seen in The Lion King. No, hyenas aren't dogs (they`re closer to mongooses and even cats), and they don't make any canine-esque sounds, but rather have their own unique plethora of vocalization, spotted hyenas make grunts, whoops, groans, a very rattling snarl and of course their iconic laughing cry. Striped hyenas, meanwhile,
sound while clashing against Mor'du at the film's climax, though.like.................this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVkdFH1CA7A

* Not-rattle snakes somehow doing the rattlesnake sound.

to:

* Not-rattle snakes somehow doing the rattlesnake sound. Gophersnakes, although they don’t have rattles, may mimic the sound of a rattlesnake’s rattle, along with having colors similar to rattlesnakes, in order to mimic a rattlesnake. Makes less sense for other non-rattle snakes though.

May disrupt SuspensionOfDisbelief for tropers who know their stuff about animals. Not to be confused with CuteButCacophonic. Noisy forests also tend to be places where [[EverythingTryingToKillYou Everything is Trying To Kill You]]. See also MisplacedWildlife, AllAnimalsAreDogs, JunglesSoundLikeKookaburras, and BugBuzz. Use of StockSoundEffects is a common culprit. Possibly related to SmallReferencePools.

* ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' has a roaring barracuda and a screeching anglerfish. Given their respective scenes are particularly heavy on NightmareFuel, this is most likely a case of RuleOfScary/RuleOfDrama.
