This ancient crocodile was named after the crocodile God Sobek and worshipped as its living incarnation. When it died it was mummified as a gift for the gods, a fate that many of Egypt's animals faced.

The British Museum, working with the UK's Royal Veterinary College, has scanned this crocodile, revealing new details about its life and death. Its last meal may have been a cow, as cattle bones were discovered inside its stomach.

This mummy was one of about 300 discovered at the same site, Kom Ombo, a temple 50km north of Aswan in Egypt.

Scanning Sobek: mummy of the crocodile god is a new exhibition at the British Museum in London in the UK.
