Certain whales can imitate the voices of humans, according to a new paper that highlights the vocal mimicry skills of one whale in particular. The marine mammal, a white whale named NOC, copied the sound of people so well that at first, researchers thought they were hearing humans conversing in the distance. A diver who worked with NOC once even left the water, wondering, "Who told me to get out?" The voice turned out to be that of NOC.
