We simply have to marvel at them. Phenomena like a body of water that kills animals and then mummifies them, and a storm that goes on forever, are just some of the things that nature does that we just don’t have an explanation for. Of course, scientists have tried to come up with reasons and theories as to why these things occur, but even with all their knowledge, they’ve only scratched the surface when it comes to truly knowing why some systems in nature just don’t go “as planned.”

The Mummifying Lake is located in the northern region of Tanzania, and is officially known as Lake Natron. The lake is made of soda and salt, and is well known its high salt concentrations and very hot temperatures. The lake can reach up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Some of the animals that live around the lake have managed to adapt to the lake’s harsh climate. However, most of the animals that venture toward Lake Natron never make it out. When the creatures get into the water, they are mummified by the soda and salt in the lake. This is both fascinating and scary.
