Mexican Mummy

This is a Mexican Mummy with an elongated skull. There are hundreds of mummies found in Mexico and displayed to the public. This mummy you can see an elongated skull, i am not sure whether it is hereditary by high neotony or if the skull was elongated artificially. This is an interesting specimen, the height and brain size is unknown.


This is the cave in Mexico in which the mummy was found. It would seem that this may have been an ideal position to defend oneself from very large predators.
