- Question: Can animals predict earthquakes?
- Changes in animal behavior can not be used to predict
earthquakes. Even though there have been documented cases of unusual animal
behavior prior to earthquakes, a reproducible connection between a specific
behavior and and the occurrence of an earthquake has not been made. Animals
change their behavior for many reasons and given that an earthquake can
shake millions of people, it is likely that a few of their pets will, by
chance, be acting strangely before an earthquake.
