French Animal Sounds Language Resources

Here is one of the posts that I promised a while back in my article on onomatopoetic French expressions, animal sounds! I know that a few of you mentioned them in the comments on the last post and I stated that I intended to do write it. I must admit that it has been sitting in “drafts” since I wrote that previous post (I wrote them both at the same time). Anyway, without further ado, French Animal Sounds.
