This is another weird natural phenomenon. And extremely rare. This phenomenon came from source of water flowing in a waterfall. Have the shape as blood that flows continuously but slowly. This phenomenon happen is Antarctica in the Mc Murdo valley. There was a geologist found this places in 1911. He thought that the red blood from the red algae. But it was more than expected.

The story behind this phenomenon is start from two millions years ago. Taylor glacier was trapped under the water stream and it containing ancient microbes. This microbes live without water, oxygen, and light. The condition over there give a red color similar to iron in the blood. Scientists estimate these fluids such as blood came from ancient microbes which trapped in the crevasse.
