Crocodile Museum opens in Aswan


A total forty mummified crocodiles will be exhibited for the first time in a museum dedicated to them, which will open doors next week in Aswan, in Upper Egypt. The news was announced today by Secretary General of the Egyptian Council of Antiquities, Zahi Hawass. Settled in front of the temple of Kom Ombo, the museum will host 40 specimens of various sizes: from the smallest, 1.5 metres long, to the real giants of almost five metres of length.
