Senegal’s salt lakes look like Pepto-Bismol

The pink color comes from microorganisms called Dunaliella salina, which thrive in the extremely salty lake. The red pigment is D. salina‘s version of chlorophyll, allowing the organisms to collect energy from the sun. All of this is natural, if visually insane. Sometimes nature is easily as crazy-looking as human-made pollution.
