Submission + - Red ants on faults stay above ground for earthquakes

MickLinux writes: To add to the debate, "can earthquakes be predicted", I might note that Gabriele Berberich has evidence for the mix. She recorded up to three years of data, showing that a particular type of ant that likes to live on faults, changes its behavior before earthquakes of magnitude 2 or greater. The ants normally forage during the day, and sleep at night. Before an earthquake, though, they mill around outside the nest until a day after the quake.
