Dogs and other animals have long been used as a reliable way to predict the occurrences of earthquakes. Dogs, insects, snakes, and other species display strange behavior and anxiety days before earthquakes happen. Dogs have even successfully warned rescue teams in the event of an impending avalanche, saving lives numerous times. In China and Japan, it isn’t just speculation, animals are considered an integral part of their earthquake warning system.
A canine’s ability to seemingly see into the future have lead many people to believe that they contain some form of ESP, or are possibly the evolutionary descendants of psychics from Mars. For the first time, researchers like Stanley Coren believe they have found the source of dogs’ power; their ears.
Through a series of tests with dogs with different types of ears and ages, it seems very likely that dogs are able to hear the high frequency movements of rock deep underground that precede minor and major earthquakes.
Listen to your pets people. They may not be psychic, or from Mars, but they don’t destroy their hearing with Slayer concerts either.
