        Nature | Can Animals Predict Disaster?: Destructive Forces

        In this video segment from Nature, scientists question how animals mysteriously survive natural disasters. Hours before the deadly Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004, elephants ran for higher ground, dogs refused to go outdoors, flamingos abandoned their breeding areas, and zoo animals rushed into their shelters. This mysterious behavior, coupled with the report of no mass animal deaths resulting, has renewed the common yet controversial theory that animals can sense imminent disaster.

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