        Nature | Can Animals Predict Disaster?: Waves of Destruction

        In 2004, the sudden rupture of a huge fault beneath the Indian Ocean unleashed a devastating tsunami. There had been no warning signs prior to the earthquake and the ensuing tsunami that reached the shores of the Indian Ocean and ravaged the coastal areas of Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, India, and Sri Lanka. However, many animals were able to escape the tsunami's destruction. This video segment from Nature examines the anatomy of the tsunami and the possibility that animals sensed the coming waves of destruction.

        This video is available in both English and Spanish audio, along with corresponding closed captions.
