As we reported yesterday, 15-year-old Greg Hubbell, Jr. from Belmont recently won his fifth World Wildlife Calling Championship, giving him the world title in five — count ’em five — species; his youth and animalistic verisimilitude making him a sort of combination Doogie Howser / Doctor Dolittle.

KQED News producer Molly Samuel and news intern Katrina Schwartz talked to Greg today, who talked back in both human and animal. I then collected some sound from the web in order to compare it to that from the champ. At that point KQED terminated my employment. (Ha ha not yet.)

See if you can guess which is which. Answers here.
