Unearthly Sound

Listen to this.

Take a guess at what makes the sounds.

I came up with the sounds Saturn makes in the recordings Cassini made. But it's a bearded seal, Erignathus barbartus. That's hands down the most weird sound I have ever heard from any living thing. It's not exactly known why the seals make this sound, but it's probably a mating call or a call to claim a territory.
