Roses are Red
Oceans are Blue
Lake Hillier is an oddity, it's pink!
The lake is situated off the coast of Western Australia. It is 600 meters in length and lies just beside the blue pacific ocean. It was discovered in the 1800’s by a navigator Matthew Flinders, and it inhabits lots of fish species.
Scientists suspect that the lake’s pink color is as a result of a type of microalgae present in the water, which produces carotenoids, same pigment found in carrots.
Although the lake is harmless for swimming; swimming is however not allowed.
