Mur could be Grr instead, I think.

Feel weird about this one

I agree with the rest of the comments, this sentence is confusing and doesn't feel natural.

Growling growl...?

Unlike other exercises here for birds and cows, the word growl isn't an onomatopoeia in English. Is the point of this that Finnish bears say mur?

There are a few sentences like this where there's a colon in the middle of the sentence or it's a short dialogue but based on the audio alone you wouldn't think of putting colons in the sentences or even thinking of them as question/answer formats, and it's very confusing... it really makes them hard to understand.

In English a growl is spelled grr.

If it ended at growling it would be fine, but thats so unnatural to say :D

That is a stupid sentence

I'm so happy that using "grr" worked!

Growling growl? Sure? One word for both?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/rchromatic

in Russian "murr" - is what a cat say

The speaker is imitating the growl at the second mur. Probably while making an expression like an angry bear. Maybe someone talking to a kid...
