There are many languages in the "animal kingdom" of the "natural world",
Manuel. There is reasonably solid evidence that dolphins can tell stories
to one another. Birds have languages also. Bees can give complex routes
to the hive, replete with landmarks, as to where the good, juicy flowers

So I don't think language works as a distinguishing and unique feature.

But all this misses the point:

Man is a product of nature and therefore all man does IS natural.
