The majestic wonders of China’s aqautic environment are yet again in the news – this time with the news that the great Yangtze River has turned rust red for “unknown” reasons.

The Yangtze River may not be famed for its clear waters, but this is the first time it has turned such a fetching shade of red:

Experts speculate pollution is the likeliest cause, with natural algal blooms considered unlikely. Chinese officials say they are “investigating.”

It is not clear whether the piranhas will be able to survive this new environment, although judging from the optimistic activity of fishermen it may be the case that the river’s waters may yet run red with a healthy new population of fish.
