Animals and Earthquakes

Did your animals act strangely before the recent earthquakes? I wish I had been awake to notice. Some people report that animals become agitated before earthquakes, and there is a school of thought that insists that animals can predict earthquakes. One unpublished paper on the Internet has a brief review of animal behavior and earthquake prediction in China, although the National Geographic and Nature both feature articles skeptical about the ability of animals to predict earthquakes . MSNBC reports that some animals run away before earthquakes, and PBS has a round-up of links. There even is a webpage devoted to animal behavior and earthquakes.
