These foxes were insta-frozen in Norway by a cold front.

As you can see they were completely caught off guard... hmm

Re: Have animals lost their inner compass?
If these are for real then wtf...

Seriously, could these not be some art work by, well artists?, students etc?.

I'm going to call fake unless there's a link to a serious story on this.

If true, and I doubt it, then flash frozen Siberian woolly mammoths, from 13000 years ago, does to come to mind.

"these" are all real, however the newest story only talks about 1 fox:

THEN it mentions that it happens quite often and shows the pictures from OP's post.

Re: Have animals lost their inner compass?
OP, this is the doomiest thing I've seen for ages.

This 'isn't possible' - but obviously it is.

The foxes going into water reminds me of all the crazy deer charging into water - like they need to super cool off from some crazy EM stuff they are feeling.

Thread: New Research - Animal Migration and Magnetism - The Source of Guidance: Magnetite
Although it has been strongly suggested that magnetism is the source for guidance in migratory animals, a new study seems to put the question to rest. The cells of certain migratory animals contain iron-rich crystals called Magnetite that are highly susceptible to earth's magnetic field.



Migration explained? Likely source of animals' magnetic sense identified

Researchers have isolated what are essentially tiny compass needles in the noses of rainbow trout that may explain these and many other animals' incredible ability to navigate across vast distances.

When cells scraped from the trout's nasal passages were placed in a rotating magnetic field, a clump of tiny iron-rich crystals inside the cells called magnetite — the same mineral used in compass needles — spun in synchrony with the field, turning the cells around with them.

The strength of the crystals' magnetic response, and their firm attachment to the surrounding cell membranes, lent strong support for what scientists have long suspected: That these crystals lean back and forth like a sail in response to Earth's weak magnetic field, and that the cells they are embedded in somehow convey their swaying movements to the brain. This is believed to confer trout and other migratory animals with a "magnetic sense" by which to judge direction.


...As detailed in a new paper published online July 9 in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers found that the magnetic cells in the trout's noses swayed in response to a magnetic field 100 times more forcefully than had previously been predicted. "More importantly, we show for the first time that the internal compass needle has a strong connection to the plasma membrane [or outer membrane] of the cell, which is important to realize an immediate sensing process," said lead researcher Michael Winklhofer of the University of Munich in Germany.

for edification: it was ONE fox found, the other pictures are from other frozen fox incidents, according to the article.

Can some humans have an inner compass?

Is it possible that someone could focus and start seeing geometric thin lines in their peripherical vision and eventually cover up their entire vision?

Yes.

Its called a moral compass, and magnetism can 'change' it.

Moral judgments can be altered ... by magnets
By disrupting brain activity in a particular region, neuroscientists can sway people’s views of moral situations.

Same thing happened during the last pole shift. I can see the movie "Day after Tommorow" happening for real.

That would put Great Britain, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, France, Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Finland, etc etc within the Arctic circle zone with an impending pole shift. Keep a thermometer at your window before you step outside, to make sure it is safe to venture outside. I am basing this on models I have studied based on a 20 degree shift.

Animal compasses have been off for a long time...I've been saying that to hubby for years. You wanna know what's going on in the world, in the earth, in the sky, pay attention to the animals of the world. They are tune with the Earth much more than we are.
