Brian Nuttall found a strange phenomenon in Apple River in Nova Scotia, Canada. The forest appears to be breathing. The forest ground rises and lowers like the rib cage of a human as they inhale and exhale. Appropriately, the eerie footage was captured on Halloween of all days.
The Internet had various hypotheses on the odd movement. Some said it was a sinkhole, others claimed it was an underground river, people who watch too much The Walking Dead were fearful that zombies were rising out of the ground and others explained the odd scenario with the always intelligent response that it was “fake and gay.”
However Nuttall had a very reasonable 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.”
The video on YouTube has nearly one million views in a week and over 14,000 people liked the video on Facebook, which was shared nearly 100,000 times.
