what comes to you mind about animals predicting earthquake and other disasters?
"We know they [animals] have better sense of hearing; they have better sense of sounds; they have better sense of sight," says Bill Karesh with the Wildlife Conservation Society. "And they're more reactive to those signals than we tend to be."And even though the animals aren't communicating directly with each other, they are taking cues from other animals' behavior."If they see birds flying away, or if they see other animals running, they're going to get nervous too," says Karesh.When the tsunami struck in Khao Lak, more than 3,000 human beings lost their lives. But no one we can find involved with the care of animals can report the death of a single one.Goson Sipasad is the manager of the Khao Lak National Park. He says all the animals went high in the hills and have not returned. He believes not one perished in or around the park."We have not found any dead animals along this part of the coast," he says.
