In the north east corner of the Rudhee Valley, there is a small indigenous tribe that claims they can tell if an earthquake is imminent by the behavior of their animals. They build small corrals, called "izits" to hold their animals. Here we see one such izit located near the Whoos fault. Not clear in the picture is that there are two goats in the shade on the right. One of the goats is lying in the food trough.

Strangely, one of their books or wisdom contains the passage, "When the goat shall lie in its food and is visited by the emu, the ground will come to shake."

We will come back again over the weeks to the Whoos fault izit for further monitoring.
