Lake Baikal is located in the Russian region of Siberia. This freshwater lake is witness to the most unique phenomena known as the Baikal Zen. It happens when stones brought by the wind to the ice of the lake are warmed and the day sun melts the ice under them. This causes the rock to remain balanced on a pedestal of thin ice.

The stories of these unusual animals have been a part of several ancient Native American legends and folklore.
