A sixth sense ... in animals?

Impressive stuff:

Wildlife officials in Sri Lanka's largest national park believe that animals sensed the Indian Ocean tsunami and fled to higher ground to avoid death.

While the human death toll continues to rise in one of the worst hit countries, experts are amazed that they have found no evidence of large-scale animal deaths.

Officials in Yala National Park, Sri Lanka's largest animal reserve, now believe the animals survived because they have a sixth sense which warned them of the impending tidal waves.
Obviously humans aren't going to be around forever. If it survives, this planet is going to be in pretty good hands ... especially after a few more million years of development.
