We all have seen the earth trembling, but have you ever seen the earth breathing? Brian Nuttal came across this unusual phenomenon on Oct. 31 in Nova Scotia, baffling social media users.
WEIRD! People are going crazy over a video of a "forest breathing"! Is the Earth trying to tell us something? https://t.co/nRGK9F2Sfn— Channel 933 FM (@Channel933) November 13, 2015
@IFLScience it's the wind moving the trees and their roots.— Sarlenga (@guampujopu) November 11, 2015
Nuttal posted the video on Facebook a day after coming across this strange happening, in which he suggested his theory for the unusual "breathing" ground.
"The larger trees are doomed to blow down but are currently spared, the smaller trees around them help hold each other up, as the wind pushes the trees into one another. The punishing prevailing winds have taken their toll on the side hill, the roots have loosened and the mossy ground from the once shaded forest floor are giving way, soon to be toppled over," he said.
