A forest is rising and falling as if breathing like a human being has gone viral. This creepy footage has baffled netizens on social media. However, this mystery is not because of an earthquake, magic or any animation. It’s because of the wind! 
Twitter user Science, Space & Nature Shared the footage on their handle and captioned it, ”This is a result of an excess space under a trees root system and strong winds. The wind blows the trees above ground & pull the trees root systems back & forth causing this phenomenon. I would shit my pants if I saw this and had no idea what was going on.” Watch the video.
