OMG PUPPY MUMMIES PUPPY MUMMIES MUPPY MUMMIES! As in puppies that were mummified! Millions of them, all piled up on top of each other in a recently discovered secret tomb in Egypt. Somebody hold me.
Reports National Geographic:
Poorly mummified and piled high, the carcasses long ago deteriorated into indistinct heaps, experts say.
“It’s not easy to identify individual mummies in the galleries or in the photographs,” said Paul Nicholson of Cardiff University in the U.K. “We have piles of mummy remains just over a meter [three feet] high, on average, that just fill the side tunnels.
“Although the mummies are not well preserved or well decorated, unlike some museum specimens, they can still give us a great deal of scientific information,” Nicholson added.
I suppose ancient Egyptians loved dogs just as much as we do and wanted to help them find an afterlife. Still, piling them all up in one chamber seems kinda sucky, no?
With that said, I WANT A PUPPY MUMMY OF MY VERY OWN!
