African Lake Literally Turns Animals Into Stone!!

Filed under: Science!Scary!AmazingCrazzzzy

African lake literally turns animals into stone!

There is a magical lake in Northern Tanzania, Africa.

It's called Lake Natron and it can literally turn any animal that touches it to stone!!

Seriously, this sounds like a fairytale but it's not!

The lake gets its name from natron, a natural compound that's mainly made of sodium carbonate and some baking soda.

When animals swim through it, they eventually become calcified, effectively turning to stone!

Photographer Nick Brandt captured images of these petrified creatures for his new book, Across the Ravaged Land.

Brandt found several bird carcasses dead along the shoreline of the lake, so he posed them and snapped some pics, saying:

Shepherd Dogs Help Save Goats And Cheetahs At The Same Time!

Filed under: DogGoatCheetah

In Gobabis, Namibia in Africa there is a delicate balance of nature.

Livestock, like goats, are integral to the economy and society.

But there's always the constant threat of attack because Namibia is home to the world's largest population of wild cheetahs!!

So how do you keep your livestock safe??

Kangal dogs!!

These cutie pooches protect their goat buddies against cheetahs but don't kill them.

They just scare most predators away!

So ever since the dogs were introduced into Namibia 19-years ago, the area has seen the largest population of wild cheetahs in 30 years at 4,000!!

That's incredible! The dogs protect the flock, so there's no longer a reason for farmers to have to kill cheetahs!!

Check out the video (above) to see a cutie guard dog in action!

Drunk Guy Charges Wild Elephant!

Filed under: AlcoholElephantsDanger!Crazzzzy

Well, that's a good way to get yourself killed!

This is totally ridiculous! A man and some of his buddies were in Kruger National Park, the game reserve in southeastern Africa, hanging out near some wild elephants.

The man was allegedly drunk and we'd believe it.

You'd have to be pretty shiz-faced to charge a full grown wild elephant!

The worst part about all of this??

The man was a safari guide for the Singita game reserve! He's obviously no longer employed with them.

He's lucky he wasn't killed!!

Check out the video (above) to see a man literally charge a wild elephant!

Prince William Listens To Animal Noises To Calm Himself!

Prince William listens to animal noises on his iPhone to stay calm

The life of a Royal seems like it's less a life in the lap of luxury and more a life constantly in the spotlight.

Things must get pretty stressful, but Prince William has a pretty healthy coping technique.

He doesn't hit the bottle, he listens to animal noises on his iPhone!

The Prince has loved Africa all his life, starting with amazing stories of adventure told to him by his mother Princess Diana.

So the sounds of Africa, the noises of the animal kingdom, help to calm and center him.
