Why are dead bodies so heavy?
Some of you know that we just lost our dog last week. Before he passed he put his head in my hand. When he finally died it seemed that his head itself gained weight.
Well today one of our guinea pigs died. As I was taking care of her body I noticed how heavy it was. When she was alive she seemed very light. Is there a reason why dead bodies are so heavy?
