Scientists Discover Never-Before-Seen Fossils of an Extinct Egyptian Carnivore near Fayoum

The animal has been dubbed Masrasector nanubis after ancient Egyptian God of the underworld Anubis.

Scientists have discovered a now extinct Egyptian carnivorous mammal, which they have named after the ancient Egyptian god of the underworld, Anubis. The animal has been dubbed Masrasector nanubis. Masrasector means the Egyptian slicer, while nanubis, the name of the species itself, stands for tiny Anubis. The name was chosen based on the animal’s resemblance to the mythical deity. Matthew Borths of Ohio University published the discovery in a study on April 19th.

According to The Daily Mail, the discovery was made in the desert, near the Fayoum Oasis. Research suggests that the animal was once near the top of the food chain, and most likely hunted our ancestors 40 million years ago. Judging by the looks of it, we can see why it was named after the god of the underworld.
