TANZANIAN LAKE TURNS ANIMALS TO STONE PHOTOGRAPHED BY NICK BRANDT According to Brande T unexpectedly found the creatures all manner of birds and bats washed up along the shoreline of Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania No-one knows for certain exactly how they die but it appears that the extreme refiective nature of the lake's surface confuses them and like birds crashing into plate glass windows they crash into the lake The water has an extremely high soda and salt content so high that it would strip the ink off my Kodak film boxes within a few seconds The soda and salt causes the creatures to calcify perfectly preserved as they dry I took these creatures as I found them on the shoreline and then placed them in living positions bringing them back to life as it were Reanimated alive again in death srsfunnyThe Creepy Lake That Turns Animals Into Stone Meme
