[Random] Lake Natron : Calcified Animals

Holy crap!!! So I got to know about this lake in Tanzania called Lake Natron, where conditions are so extreme that animals who enter the lake get calcified! According to the internet, the lake’s temperature can get as high 60 °C (140 °F) and it has an alkaline pH that varies between 9.0-10.5.

Found these set of pictures related to this event really cool, like something out of a dark movie.
So I thought I’d share =)
And yes the animals are alive!
