“Moshi moshi!” Watch Abe the Mynah Speak JapaneseN. Burns
This talented mynah speaks his mom’s language perfectly enough to answer the phone for the family! In this cute video, Abe (pronounced “Ah-be”) starts talking before the phone rings. When the sound of the phone startles him, he asks “Dou shitano,” what’s wrong? His mom gently tells him he’s a little early, and he gamely replies, “hai, wakarimashita!” Yes, understood! What a cutie.
