** Kimble's ferret in ''Film/KindergartenCop'' similarly makes lots of squeaking, chittery noises that ferrets don't really produce.

*** 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"). Not, you know, a distinctive [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3wNuEcbHag trilling or whinnying]]. In reality, the owls [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_YvyXu7coXA that make bloodcurdling screams]] are ''Barn'' Owls.

* 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]].

* Not-rattle snakes somehow doing the rattlesnake sound.
* All predators in general growling and roaring as they chase their prey. This makes no sense unless they are feeding on their fear.

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.

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, and BugBuzz. Use of StockSoundEffects is a common culprit. Possibly related to SmallReferencePools.

* Nearly every jungle scene, no matter what the intended location, features the distinctive call of the Kookaburra, only native to dry upland areas in Australia, probably because many uninformed people mistake it for a generic primate's "ooh ooh ahh."
** Hilariously, in Jesus Franco's ''Count Dracula'' (1973) you hear the kookaburra call ''in the Borgo Pass.''
** ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'' has a kookaburra in the South American Jungle
** ''Film/BlackNarcissus'' had one in the Himalayas!
** The Kookaburra is one of the many completely misplaced animals that turn up in the ''Swiss Family Robinson''.
** An edited kookaburra sound provided {{Series/Flipper}}'s famous chatter.
** The attentive viewer familiar with the kookaburra's various calls might notice an unusual one in "The Wizard of Oz" - specifically, as they enter the haunted forest.

** Justified in ''Disney/TheRescuers Down Under'': Marahute is a fictional species (who seems to have been born fully fledged out of the RuleOfCool) and is voiced by a ''human'' (the extremely versatile Frank Welker).

* Though the idea that giraffes cannot make any sound at all seems to have been discredited, they are still very silent creatures. This is apparently disliked by filmmakers, who makes them sound like... ''rhinos'' (one example: ''{{Gladiator}}'' - the giraffes make the same sound as the baby ''Stegosaurus'' in ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'', which in turn sounds just like the audio sample in Encarta's entry on the Black Rhinoceros)
