By the we find buried in the necropolises various such animals including hamadryas or the sacred baboon papio hamadryas baboons Papio cynocephalus anubis green monkeys Cercopithecus aethiops red monkeys Cercopithecus pata and the barbary ape Macaca sylvanus … .. …. .. ..Though many of these animals were considered to be a vessel that could be inhabited by the gods and must have been given considerable care investigations into the animal necropolises of and particularly have revealed that their life expectancy in Egypt was very limited.
