... crocodiles! We learnt that they mummified animals for four different reasons; pets of the kings, animals for food in the afterlife, sacred animals and offerings for the gods. There was another room of real mummies after that, which was just as cool as the last room, although there was one case with nothing in it, which was a little bit creepy!
