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)

* Subverted ''and'' played straight in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheLionGuard'', which featured a herd of zebras whinnying like horses together with the usual high-pitched "barking" sounds they normally make. While it's possible for zebras to whinny, they sound nothing like a horse.

** The same goes for crickets and {{cicad|ianRhythm}}as during the mating season. In summers where you've got multiple species of cicadas up, expect to want earplugs. For good measure, an upside-down or otherwise trapped one can make a ''definite'' racket through panicking '''and''' hiss like a snake.

* Rats, as mentioned above, always seem to squeak in human-audible tones in fiction. There ''is'' one situation in which a rat's ultrasonic clicks, chortles and chitters dip down into frequencies that humans can hear: unfortunately it doesn't bode well for the rat, as that's when it's got ratty laryngitis from a respiratory infection.
