Would the ability to hear animal conversations be a useful superpower?
- Weasel McWeaselLv 72 months agoFavorite Answer
quite possibly. We know some animals DO communicate with each other, so if we could gain access to THEIR knowledge, it's possible we might learn something.
Just for an example, animals are often more attuned to natural disasters and can sense when danger is approaching.
They can sense earthquakes, about to happen, before they happen.
HOW do they do that......and what do they pick up on that we as humans, perhaps miss, or don't detect?

Yes, I think there are a lot of people in the world who would pay to hear what their pets are thinking. I would offer NO discounts. In fact, there would be an extra fee if your pet said something rude about me.

Probably not. Animals have much less complex and simple brains than humans, and are not capable of complex or insightful language/communication. It would be like hearing cavemen speak, only worse.

Hell yeah if you could communicate back... very useful for pending zombie apocalypse. Squirrel teeth sharp af... bears... I wonder what they’d want in trade. You know those mafia motherfckers don’t do sht for free

Not to me.
I would probably become a vegan and an extreme animal lover. I'll take in all the abused animals and protest against people eating meat.
I'd rather not know. Its for my own good.
