Sounds of Animals in Russian

This page shows how to imitate the sounds of animals, birds and insects in Russian. These sounds are commonly used by Russian kids and their parents to pretend to "speak" like a cat, a dog, a frog, a wolf, or a lion. You can use them as a game after you teach kids the names for different animals and birds.
