Two archeologists announced today that they have discovered 2,000 mummified goldfish whilst doing research in a pyramid in Egypt. It took them a while to figure out what the miniature mummies actually were.
They used special x-ray equipment to study the mummies as they didn't wish to destroy any of the small mummies in the process of carrying out their study.
Cats and dogs have been found mummified in pyramids in the past, but never goldfish.
"This is an absolutely amazing discovery," announced Digger Jones, from Eaglescliffe, Yorkshire. "We are so excited to be the first to find such mummies.
We are now hoping to work closely with the Egyptian Government in order to get them to release some of these mummies to take back to England for further studies."
The problem is that the archeologists have not been able to contact any members of the Egyptian Government as there is some sort of problem going on in Egypt at the present time.
They are hopeful that the situation will resolve itself soon and they are able to return to England with their 'exciting' find or at least a small portion of it.
More as we get it.
