Where are all the dead animals?

With the death toll of the Tsunami now expected to reach 100,000 this article from Reuters raises an interesting question. Why were not more animals caught up in this event? According to Sri Lankan wildlife officials they can't find any dead animals. Perhaps they are just being overlooked given all the dead humans around. I doubt they have a 'sixth sense' as the article mentions but they certainly pay attention to their surroundings more and have a more active fight or flight mechanism.
