The Crocodile Mummies of Ancient Egypt
Egyptians didn’t just mummify cats and people
The ancient Egyptians had a knack and a craving to mummify anything and everything. Egyptologists have unearthed mummified birds, cats, people, children, ibises, baboons, and even fish. They even mummified crocodiles. And the Egyptians didn’t just mummify a few crocodiles, they mummified thousands.
