Animals That Can Sense Danger
By Baxter Jacinto
No matter how advanced our technology is, we still don’t really have the accurate tools to predict an upcoming disaster. But animals seem to be able to sense when something is about to happen. We’ve yet to come across a definitive study between animal behavior and natural disasters, but our fellow earth inhabitants seem to behave differently when something’s about to go down.
Let’s look at some of them:
Horses become wild and uncontrollable before a storm or earthquake approaches. They will make noises and will start stomping away to safety.
Cows start to act frantic and display erratic behavior before a natural disaster takes place.
Bats use their echolocation capabilities to scout their prey, but their built-in sonars can also detect seismic waves.
An unusual sight of birds is a sign that a storm is approaching. This flock of birds would usually steer away from their usual route when they sense that path will be hit by a storm.
