What the Heck Is This?

Some sort of candy? The innards of a whale?

Actually, it's an ice cave, or what scientists call an englacial melt channel. This ice cave was formed by meltwater flowing within the glacier ice.

It's found in Belcher Glacier, Devon Island, Nunavut, Canada. See the full image below.

Got a strange or interesting photo related to science, nature or technology? What the Heck, send it to me and maybe I'll use it. And you follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
