    Wow.
    Wow is correct. If you aren't even going to read what I wrote, that you are just going to take wild leaps to satisfy your own preconceived notions, why do you even want to go through a farce of a "conversation"? What does it get you? Are you really so desperate to feel your own beliefs need to be validated by me?

    Nice double talk, but you forgot to answer the question I just showed you, that you did not answer, as you falsely claimed you had.

    Summary - you did not answer the question because you realized you were cornered, and incorrect.

    So yes, the egg came before the chicken.

    Next!

    Well I guess that settles it, then. Your having seen many turtles answers an age-old question that modern scientists, despite decades of dedicated scholarship and study, have never been able to solve.

    You really should write a science journal article about this revelation. The world will thank you.

    You really need to learn the Duck Test.

    "If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck."

    Anthropologists, Palaeontologists and Geologists would be lost without it. They aren't precious about this. Ask them if turtles roar, and they'll say no. Ask them how they know and they'll say something like, "I caught turtles as a child, have seen many others in many places, and watched many documentaries, and in all that time I never heard them make a peep."

    In your case you may need to get a thousand turtles, whip them, electrify them, use drugs on them and record all the results, before getting a committee together to review the results, and then have a meeting to discuss the possibility that maybe there had been a few roars, when nobody was looking.

    The rest of us will just go with the Duck Test, thanks.

    Do turtles roar?

    No.

    No, you were the guy who found that turtles sometimes croak, and that some fish make farting noises. I would suggest you look up the word ‘loud’. I didn’t say Dinos didn’t fart, or croak. I said they didn’t roar. I’m sure they had quite loud stomach rumbling too, and the occasional yawn, but that isn’t what the OP is about. It’s about roaring dinosaurs.

    If anything, you simply confirmed my point, that reptiles are very, very quiet most of the time, and even when they do make noises, they are not roaring, screaming, barking or screeching, which dinos are always depicted doing.

    So why are reptiles a very quiet Class of animals? Perhaps it is partly to do with being cold blooded. Being noisy would not be so smart if you are cold and can’t move fast. Roaring or screaming would also use up a lot of valuable energy. Amphibians are cold blooded, but they are small and slimy, and can usually swim away quickly to avoid predators, so they can risk making a lot of noise. Dinos were not able to fly or swim away, so being silent was a lot safer for them.

    Before you bring up the fact that it was much warmer in the dino’s time, or that some scientists think there is a chance some dinos may have been warm blooded, those things don’t matter, because one is not proven, and temperatures go up and down, and if an entire class of animals are very quiet, they aren’t likely to become noisy just because the weather changes for a while. It’s more likely they will continue along with a major feature like being quiet, which is why none of today’s reptiles are noisy. Being silent has its advantages, especially when hunting or being hunted.

    So did dinosaurs roar and scream? I highly, highly doubt it.
