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!

OMG!!! This is terrifying!

Benedict Cumberbatch is counting his blessings after a truly scary experience in South Africa, more frightening than any film he's ever been in!

While shooting the 2005 miniseries To the Ends of the Earth, Benedict and two of his buddies were driving through a dangerous area late at night. He explained moment for moment what happened next, saying:

"We were in South Africa, in KwaZulu-Natal, this amazing district north of Durban [but] notoriously dangerous."

As they made their way down the road, suddenly their car's front tire blew out, stranding them in the middle of nowhere! Benedict continued:

"We were like sitting ducks, adverts for — not prosperity necessarily but materialism."

While he and his friends tried to fix their vehicle, six ARMED men emerged from the dark and demanded all of their money and any drugs they had on them! The actor remembers the men screaming:
