Iron oxide is found in Blood Falls. The iron gives the falls the bloody color. FUN FACTS! 1. Pioneers originally thought that the red color
was from red algae. Life on Blood Falls? Professors from Harvard University found bacteria life (About 17 different kinds) in a sub climate eco system that have been receiving life by recycling energy , and extracting Iron from the brine/water using sulfate. Blood falls
source of water The Conditions:
Very Salty
No Light
No oxygen
Cold But these bacteria still survive on their recycled energy. Taylor Glacier Blood Falls Fissure in Glacier Rocks? 1. The oldest rocks found in East
Antarctica (where blood falls is
located) is estimated to be about
3 billon years old.

2. These rocks are metamorphic
rocks overlaid with by younger,
flat-laying ocean deposited sediment. HELEN AMMERAE LIZ HELEN LIZ HELEN 2. The falls does not effect the ecosystem in any bad ways How was Blood Falls really created?
