A CT scan of a 2000-year-old mummified crocodile from Egypt has revealed body parts from two reptiles stuffed inside the ancient artefact. The 2.4m-long relic was scanned by scientists earlier this month at the Stanford School of Medicine in California.
The scans showed body parts from two Nile crocodiles two heads, a shoulder bone and what is believed to be a femur, National Geographic reports. The body parts had been covered in papyrus stems before being wrapped.
