this was in today's (Jan 1st) Toronto Star newspaper.... Footprints in jello Sri Lankan wildlife officials are baffled: The worst tsunami in memory has killed around thousands and thousands of people along the Indian Ocean island's coast, but they can't find any dead animals. Giant waves washed floodwaters up to two miles inland at Yala National Park in the ravaged southeast, Sri Lanka's biggest wildlife reserve and home to hundreds of wild elephants and several leopards. "The strange thing is we haven't recorded any dead animals," H.D. Ratnayake, deputy director of the national Wildlife Department, told Reuters. "No elephants are dead, not even a dead hare or rabbit," he added. "I think animals can sense disaster. They have a sixth sense. They know when things are happening." And elephants, you may recall, are good at hiding in refrigerators.
