Nile crocodile mummy from ancient Egypt curated at the Musée des Confluence in Lyon. This specimen is in two parts and the textiles have been removed to expose the animal. It underwent an unusual preparation protocol as all the skeleton and organs have been completely removed with the exception of the head and the fingers that cannot be removed without damaging the skin. This preparation is interpreted as a way to use a cadaver advanced in decay process to make a mummy.
