Croc Update (Mummy Edition)

Crocodile mummies at UC Berkeley's Phoebe A. Hearst Museum - "Strange that no horror movie ever featured these creatures from the crypts of ancient Egypt — crocodile mummies.

The toothy reptiles were embalmed and wrapped in worship of the crocodile god Sobek, and two painstakingly preserved 2,000-year-old specimens are now on display at UC Berkeley in an ancient Egypt exhibit that marks a sharp departure from touring King Tut spectacles."
