8 Million Dog Mummies

There has been a Mass Grave found with 8 Million Dog Mummies resting in it. Some of them very well persevered.

I hereby quote the article from their website, written by Laura Geggel:

“In ancient Egypt, so many people worshiped Anubis, the jackal-headed god of death, that the catacombs next to his sacred temple once held nearly 8 million mummified puppies and grown dogs, a new study finds.
The catacomb ceiling also contains the fossil of an ancient sea monster, a marine vertebrate that's more than 48 million years old, but it's unclear whether the Egyptians noticed the existence of the fossil when they built the tomb for the canine mummies, the researchers said.”
