Blood Falls is a strange stream of blood-red water flowing from a part of the Taylor Glacier onto West Lake Bonney in Antarctica.

The red color comes from iron oxides, but iron alone doesn't cause the coloration. Tests have shown a rare subglacial ecosystem of bacteria that thrive in the strange conditions.
