The sound that an animal makes when it is angry or when it is determined to protect itself is a growl. There are many different animals that growl. The badger that you see in the picture above is growling. He’s showing his teeth and he’s making a growling sound.
We also use the word "growl" when talking about the sound made by a person’s stomach.
This is a difficult word for some students to pronounce. I’ll say it slowly and repeat the word.
