Holy Shit Elephants Are Awesome

Elephants ran away from tsunami. And carried a few tourists with them, but whatever.

We already know that elephants communicate seismically, and are pretty good at sensing vibrations underfoot. Not as good as a proper seismometer, of course, not least because you risk being squished when trying to retrieve your data. But they’re much cuter than seismometers – cuter than most seismologists, too.

So I’m sure it would help the geophysical community’s reputation if we all switched to elephant-painting seismograms.
