Missing mummies: Hundreds of ancient Egyptian animals remains prove to be empty inside.

The title of the article is self explanatory. I thought this article was interesting because usually mummies have remains inside of it. It was a bit baffling to hear this news. I was curious as to why people back then wanted to mummify animals such as the monkey in the photo. I do not believe they were domesticated when people were mummifying one another. Because there are no remains, this mummification seem like it was for spiritual reasons. To symbolize help or companionship in the afterlife.
