A Silent Water World

There are animals that don’t possess vocalizations, or at least they do not make sound to us. They might well be able to communicate with sound that is below or above our range of hearing. Nevertheless, it is probably safe to say fish and dragon flies do not make sound. On the drawing above they just look at each other. It is a silent water world.
