Of course they feel it. The pressure doesn't just drop outside, it drops everywhere in the area, that is unless you live in a pressure-sealed house. Heh.

If you watch your pets before a storm they usually act differently. Even small animals like mice and gerbils will react.

A huge drop in barometric pressure will even trigger birth in animals and humans. It causes the water to break and can cause premature birth. During hurricanes the hospitals are usually full of pregnant women. They even have special birthing centers in some areas for women to go to if there is a hurricane, so they won't run the risk of being stranded without medical care if they go into labor because of the barometric pressure change.

It's pretty amazing.

We used to have a hydrometer, thermometer and barometer fixture and it was very interesting to watch the humidity raise, the temp drop and the barometric pressure fluctuate as a storm approached.

You can get these meter three packs at merchandise stores like Wal-Mart for usually around $20.

Awesome, thanks for that info Kitten! So is this possibility why my frogs (all of them) are not eating properly? It's been raining ALL week. Maybe that explains it. lol

My frogs start calling like CRAZY when a storm passes through. So I would say yes, they definitely can sense the change in barometric pressure. It's also a great time to introduce your frogs into the rainchamber if you are trying to breed them.

Oh, mem, i knew what you were getting at, I was just asking another question within your question

If you do start your rain chamber, I wish you luck with breeding then ;)
