A Killer Whale That Can “Speak”

The BBC  reports

A killer whale that can mimic words such as “hello” and “bye bye” is thought to be the first of its kind to copy human speech.
The female learned to “speak” a handful of human words by copying a trainer at a marine park in France.
The animal’s repertoire includes the name “Amy” and “one, two, three”.
Whales and dolphins are among the few animals other than humans that can learn to produce a novel sound just by hearing it.
