fed by the pu'u o'o vent, which is located upcountry by approx. 10 km,
the lava flows subterraneanly down the hills towards the coast.
approx. 1 km before the shore line it reaches the surface,
where it moves slowly towards the coast.
it´s surface cooles down very rapidly. but below this skinny surface, the lava is still hot and liquid and flowing.
so it squeezes the skin, sometimes showing these toothy mouthes.
