Toads - earthquake predictors?
« on: April 14, 2010, 05:18:22 AM »
What has four legs, warts and the ability to sense earthquakes days before they occur? The TOAD! A recent study has shown that a population of common European toads, Bufo bufo, may be able to sense seismic activity days before an earthquake occurs. A breeding study in 2009 in Lí Aquila, Italy, by the United Kingdomís The Open University researcher Rachel Grant observed a sharp decline in toad population five days before a 6.3-magnitude earthquake occurred 74 kilometers away. The breeding toads left the area three days before the earthquake, only to return five days after the post-aftershock to resume breeding.
