---QUOTATION---
That can't be natural can it?

It seems so, apparently the color is produced by a salt-tolerant bacteria. The salt lake itself appears to be natural as well according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuncheng_Salt_Lake

More pictures: http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-07/24/c_137345728.htm

Edit: maybe the geometrical patterns are made by humans harvesting salt, maybe this has resulted in different salinity in each section, which in turn has made the bacteria produce different colors?

I really hope this Elk survives after puting that effort into it. Most humans would be face-down after that.
