Egypt unveils animal mummies of lion cubs, crocodiles, birds

Egypt’s Ministry of Antiquities on Saturday revealed details on recently discovered animal mummies. The find includes two lion cubs as well as several crocodiles, birds and cats. Items were displayed at a makeshift exhibition at the famed Step Pyramid of Djoser in Saqqara, south of Cairo. Archaeologists frequently find mummified cats but the recovery of a lion is rare.

VERY cool find! Should be interesting to see whether the large cats and birds are from extinct species or not.
