The Petsuchos is the name of a type of crocodile from a place called Crocodilopolis in Ancient Egypt. The Petsuchos had horns and was usually adorned with expensive jewelry. Petsuchos was worshipped like a god and many believed tat the beast was the manifestation of the the Egyptian god Sobek, the crocodile god of creation who sometimes associated himself with chaos. The name Petsuchos means $lsquo;son of Sobek’. The word pet refers to offspring. The Petsuchos had a sun disk resting on a very beautiful and decorative headdress. It was believed that when it died another was created to take its place. A dead Petsuchos would be mummified in the usual fashion much like Pharoahs and priests.
