Research has found that studying the behavior of sharks before hurricanes could provide valuable insights and lessons for humans.
The behavior of sharks towards hurricanes might just help predict hurricane formation faster.
It was discovered that part of the behavior of sharks to have a tendency to migrate to deeper and calmer waters in advance of major hurricanes.
This behavior of sharks is significant because it could potentially enable researchers to gain early insights into the occurrence of severe storms.
This behavior of sharks was prompted by their ability to detect changes in air pressure during hurricanes.
The behavior of sharks towards hurricanes may be due to their exceptional hurricane radar due to their ability to detect electrical fields from a distance.
Using sensory pores in their snouts, they can sense even the faintest electric fields, such as those produced by prey’s muscle movement or heartbeat which makes the sensitive behavior of sharks towards hurricanes more plausible.
Recent research pointed out the behavior of sharks when there are changes in water pressure. The said behavior of sharks is that it seeks refuge in deeper parts of the ocean when it perceive major hurricane while it stay in place when they perceive minor hurricanes, according to Forbes.
Researchers found that the behavior of sharks towards hurricanes is different depending on the sharks’ species and location, Forbes added.
