I had no idea the Egyptians mummified animals until I saw this article (which linked to several other articles on the same subject). It makes sense, though, considering their religious beliefs. If animals were considered to be sacred, it follows that the Egyptians would have prepared them for the afterlife as well.

Amazing how Egyptians worshipped almost everything! Still love Egypt as it is, a great history and wonderful sunny skies.
