Blood Falls is an odd feature on the Taylor Glacier in Antarctica’s McMurdo Dry Valleys. Red liquid will occasionally pour out of the glacier, giving it the appearance that it is gushing with blood.

The ‘blood’ is actually caused by a very salty lake called Lake Bonney, which is situated under 1,300 feet of ice. When the water seeps to the surface, it oxidises and turns red.
