Reports have shared that the celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Julia Fox, and many others are using a specific vocal fry to impress their audience is not their unique trait.

As per Coen Elemans, professor of sound communication, vocal fry refers to “a normal voice register that is often used in American English.” It is basically dropping the voice down to the lowest pitches which affect our voice to stutter creating a “creaking” sound.

Examples of vocal fry in humans would be something like “Oh my gaaaaawd” or “shut uuuuup”.

A new study has unveiled that marine animals like dolphins, orcas, killer whales, and sperm whales have evolved their nasal sound which has similarities to the sound American natives sounded.

Certain aquatic animals use specific voice registers[creaky voice] to produce their echolocation calls to hunt for their prey. It is shared that the vocal cords open for a short time which allows them to use very little breathing air in the process. Aquatic mammals like toothed whales go deep underwater to produce ultrasonic echolocation which helps them in locating and catching their prey.
