Abstract: In representatives of two animal species - an African gray parrot (Psittaccus erithacus timneh) and a Wolf (Canis lupus) are registrated soundgrams (graffical records of sounds). In the first case the parrot is accurately reproducing the well learned phrase „Obicham te“ (I love you), imitating human speech. In the second case is represented an extraordinary record of a human male (researcher), who imitates in a sophisticated and exact way the wolf howl. Those record are compered to the same kind of vocalization in human and accordingly a wolf and then analysed by amplitude, frequency and other modulations, thereafter presented as a graphical registration.
