    Hi. While at the zoo my partner and I filmed a squirrel that chirped like the Star Trek Communicator. We've uploaded some videos because it made us laugh: http://youtu.be/nRp6gwJo8cc and original: http://youtu.be/fZqcmi6k_fM
    Do any of you know whether the original sound effects people recorded squirrel for the communicators in the original series.
    If you want to compare and contrast, here are some clips from the show that I found online:
