Zoologists at the near by zoo in Sumatra say that elephants and jaguars retreated to higher ground hours before the Tsunami hit. This could have been sensed by two things, either vibrations the animals felt through the ground caused by the earthquake or a shift in air presure that animals may be sensitive to.
