Description
Anubis is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head. Originally, archeologists believed the sacred animal of Anubis was a golden jackal. However, recent molecular work done by biologists has shown that the wild dog-like animals of the Egyptian desert are not jackals but African wolves. Golden jackals are only found in Asia and Europe, not in Egypt. - (LM.99)
