Tanzanian Lake Mummifies Animals

Tanzania's Lake Natron is turning animals into stone, sort of.
With a pH pushing 10.5, the water is so alkaline that animals that succumb to the harsh environment don't decompose -- they're pickled.
Wildlife photographer Nick Brandt was especially mesmerized by the phenomenon, posing the corpses in positions normally assumed in life.
The result is haunting.
