The god of mummification was very important along with his amazing role. His name would have to be Anubis! Anubis watches over the crazy little mummies, even mummified animals. Hes got a boring role I'd say, but pretty cool. Anubis also makes sure no one robs those mummies. I wonder what Anubis looks like, don't you? Well, Anubis is a jackal, actually half jackal. Anubis has the body of a human, but the head of a jackal. Weird right? Anubis is the a pretty awesome god. A jackal is like a dog and it's a member of any three small to medium species. Can you picture him now?
