Amenophis III

Ask Amenophis:

  Do any modern cultures practice mummification?  
  Were animals mummified, too?  
  What parts of the body were removed before mummification?  
Amenophis says:

Cats, monkeys, birds, and other animals were mummified.

Egyptians were a very happy and fun-loving people. They also drank a lot.

Mummies are first dried, then wrapped, to preserve the body.
