Only in Mexico could an earthquake detector come in the form of folk art. Made out of wood the heads of the brightly painted animals, reptiles and insects wobble when seismic activity begins. Turtles appear to be the most popular.
Eco-friendly they require no electricity or batteries. And the pocket-sized critters are easy to take home or bring with you the next time you travel to an earthquake zone.
