This video of the Earth breathing will make you run for your life

Nature, man

Brian Nuttall had a mystical forest experience when he was out for a walk in Apple River, Nova Scotia. As he went for a stroll on a windy October 30th afternoon, Nuttall witnessed the forest floor breathing. Naturally, Nuttall whipped out his cell phone and captured this giant living organism taking deep breaths.

Check out the video in the player above!

While this looks to be an enchanted forest, according to CBC News this incident is less mysterious than we had hoped. Most likely, the tree’s roots have detached from their holds and when the wind hits the trees, it causes the roots to “breathe”.

Still – the video is chilling.
