Beth Jung's curator insight, March 3, 2014 5:34 AM

This article is about the Lake Natron in northern Tanzania and is the most serene lake in Africa. The alkaline water in Lake Natron has a pH as high as 10.5 and is so caustic it can burn the skin and eyes of animals that aren't adapted to it. The deposits of sodium carbonate, which was once used in the Egyptian mummification, acts as a type of preservative for those unlucky animals that have died. While working, Africa Photographer, Nick Brandt, discovered dead animals on the shoreline. I never knew there was these kinds of lakes or rivers in Africa. This river does not drain in or out of any river or sea, and they are fed by hot springs and small rivers. In a hot climate, this lake can be up to 106 degrees Fahrenheit. I think it is very cool how there were such places in Africa because I thought there's only deserts and countries and cities, not like these abandoned places. It is very sad how animals die and it is really cool how the animals can survive when they are adapted to it. The things that were used from a long time ago can still harm people and environment these days so we should watch those out.
