Is Frog Exodus in Greece Sign of Coming Earthquake

Greek officials say a horde of frogs has forced the closure of a key northern highway for two hours. Thessaloniki traffic police chief Giorgos Thanoglou says “millions” of the amphibians covered the tarmac Wednesday near the town of Langadas, some 12 miles east of Thessaloniki.

“There was a carpet of frogs,” he said.

Some readers may remember Thessaloniki as the home of the Thessalonian church which Paul wrote to in the New Testament.

Believe it or not the Chinese earthquake that killed 12000 people and counting was predicted by a mass migration of frogs. Yes, the massive earthquake in China yesterday that killed thousands of people was predicted by an incredible movement of frogs that was noted by the public as a bad omen. The government told the people that the idea was silly and that it was just the frog’s natural migration (across major roads that had not seen this kind of frog travel previously) for mating. The mass movement was first noticed on May 5th.May 13th, 2008


Study: Toads May Detect Coming Earthquakes

When it comes to predicting earthquakes, toads – warts and all – may be an asset.

British researchers said Wednesday that they observed a mass exodus of toads from a breeding site in Italy five days before a major tremor struck, suggesting the amphibians may be able to sense environmental changes, imperceptible to humans, that foretell a coming quake.

Since ancient times, anecdotes and folklore have linked unusual animal behavior to cataclysmic events like earthquakes, but hard evidence has been scarce. A new study by researchers from the Open University is one of the first to document animal behavior before, during and after an earthquake.
