LOL Medusa's Blood lake!

Wasn't it in that story when Medusa got killed he threw her body into a lake, Maybe it was this lake her dead body was thrown into?

When fishing it, all that's required is a roll of paper

Does not work that way.
Animals need to be in the water for a while before turning like that (they were already dead, probably for drinking the water), not "touching the water, turning into stone".
As said in that article they were placed in lively positions by someone to get attention.

Not to ruin everyone's fun, but the photographer acknowledges he posed dead animals that had mummified due to the effects of naptha found in the lake. Naptha is what the Egyptians used in their mummification process, and the lake in question is named 'Lake Naptha'. It's being misrepresented across the web these animals died as they appear in the photographs, i.e. 'turned to stone'.

As a few others have mentioned -- animals are not instantaneously turned to stone. During months of heavy evaporation the alkalinity in the lake increases dramatically. This can kill animals who are not used to the harsh environment or are over-exposed, but can also petrify remains. If you read about the lake, a species of fish lives near the hot spring estuaries and less alkaline parts of the lake -- and of course, there are the flamingos.

The pictures are neat, but for those folks in the US, bogs can create a similar mummified effect -- but not calcification.

This is a totally dishonest series of photos put together by a photographer for his book. They appear to depict dead birds turned into statues on branches of trees. In reality, he found their carcases lying about on the shore of a lake contaminated with sodium carbonate from volcanic ash. They had become preserved in the dry atmosphere after being poisoned. Then he stuck them into branches of dead trees to make them look like statues before photographing them in posed positions. This may be artistic, but it sure ain't honest photographic journalism!

Don't be deceived by the phony title of this story. It grabs attention, which the photographer no doubt wanted for his photos, but It's inaccurate.


How is it dishonest when the photographer admits as much? You know many of those nice up close images you see of insects are actually dead bugs too right? it's not uncommon or dishonest.

The photographer said he posed them, nothing wrong with that. The one person sounds like they believe he killed em himself lol. What a joke.

So no humans got cemented lol, darn... Lol

Lake Natron is not made from flamable Naptha to my knowledge, but that would be explosive...

That's exactly what I think. I tried looking for this online and there is mention that flamingos live in that Lake and it's their only source of water and food in that area, so I doubt animals turn to stone by just touching the water in the lake.

It is also strange that all the animals have almost perfect poses. It's still interesting nonetheless.

Title is a tad misleading....its not that they touch it and change to stone, they drown in it and then are washed ashore...or they have died and been submerged in the water for some time before being brought back to land.

Pretty crazy regardless.
