Scientists have finally solved the mystery of how those mummified baboons got all the way to Egypt. Turns out, they hitched a ride on a boat from a place called Punt. Or maybe it was Adulis. We’re not really sure, those ancient Egyptians had a lot of names for places. But one thing is for sure, those baboons were definitely party animals. They were found missing their canine teeth, which means they were probably gnashing on some serious figs and dates. And as if that wasn’t enough, they were also mummified and offered as votive tokens to the god Thoth. Talk about living the high life!
