    Lake Natron, located in Tanzania's Rift Valley has very alkaline water in which only bacteria can survive. The water is so incredibly salty and alkaline that animals and insects that fall in die and create mumified carcasses that are literally coated in salt. For some incredible photos of the creatures, check out the following link.
