Is the perfect MUMMY on earth?
We are talking about this girl who was found after being frozen for 500 years!
Scientists have named her “Juanita”:
- She was believed to be killed to offer to the Inca gods
- That could be around 1450
- She could be between 10 and 15 years old at her death
- Juanita is said to be the perfectly preserved mummy ever to have been found.
- All her internal organs are intact
- Best thing is that the blood is still available in her heart and lungs
- Even her garments were well-preserved.
- Juanita’s facial as well as skin features are mostly unharmed.
- She looks like a sleeping kid.
- Her mummified body was discovered in Mount Ampato, southern Peru.
- There are a couple more mummies found with her of a young woman and young man.
- At present, Juanita is on display at a museum in Arequipa, Peru.
Isn’t that simply amazing in itself?!
