First proof of bird breeding in ancient Egypt

3 septiembre 2015

3D imaging of a mummified kestrel that died due to forced overeating provides evidence that the ancient Egyptians bred birds of prey as offerings for the gods, according to a new study. The digital CT imaging revealed that the kestrel was force-fed its last meal – a mouse – suggesting it was kept in captivity. This is the first evidence to point to mass breeding of raptors as offerings to gods.
