Animal skulls covered in salt after being submerged in Lake Assal. Lake Assal, located in east-central Djibouti, is the largest hypersaline water body in Africa. This crater lake is classified as a thalassohaline body, meaning it is dominated by sodium and chloride, reflecting the ionic composition of ocean waters; Lake Assal is an endorheic basin, meaning it has no flow outlet, so that salinity is concentrated as massive evaporation proceeds in this hot arid climate.
