Photographer Nick Brandt has captured these stunning and morbid images of animals that have been calcified by the extreme local environment of Lake Natron in Tanzania. It’s unknown exactly how or why the animals ended up in the waters of Lake Natron but it would seem that the extreme salt and soda content of the lake causes the creatures to calcify as they dry.
