Zoo Animals Predicted Earthquake

Zookeepers and observers noticed that animals at the National Zoo predicted the recent quake in Virginia (the largest there since 1897). Notably, the red-ruffed lemurs where raising the not-so-often used alarm call minutes before the quake struck. Also, one orangutan began vocalizing its unhappy, irritated noise shortly before the quake.
