Does the forest floor really breathe?

In Video

It’s not a mysterious movie, it’s real. But with the sound of the wind and the waves of the earth, the forest floor really looks like it’s breathing, and it really does feel like a mysterious movie.

A Taiwanese folk tale says that earthquakes are caused by an ‘earth cow’. The earth cow sleeps sound under the earth most of the time. But sometimes he turns his body, which will lead to earthquakes.

This video makes me wonder whether there is really an earth cow lying underneath the ground. He sleeps so soundly and breathes so hard that it causes the forest floor to move up and down. Shortly afterward, the floor vibrates faster and seems to even pant—maybe the videographer is waking the earth cow! And watch out! The earth cow might start turning his body now!
