Ripley's Believe It or Not by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for January 17, 2017
The Basilica of Our Lady of Immaculate Tears in Ponta Nossa, Italy, has a crocodile hanging from the ceiling- about 500 years old, it's the oldest piece of taxidermy in the world! The word denim comes from the name of the town where the fabric was originally produced- Nimes, France. China banned pigtails in 1911! They were seen as a symbol of feudalism.
How is a 500-year old crocodile older “taxidermy” than, say, an Egyptian pharaoh?
