In Naruto, some animals can talk, like the toads of Mount Myōboku, Kakashi's ninja dogs, Manda, and Katsuyu. Some of them have ever used hand signs. Yet Akamaru can't even talk. Is the ability to talk given to certain animals at random, or can they all talk when they have enough chakra or do they just simply have to learn how?

  • I think it was mentioned in one of the databooks, that Kakashi's Dogs can only talk because they are clever enough. I'm not sure, however.

    Are you indirectly saying Akamaru isn't clever?
