Fossilized bird egg sells at auction for more than $100,000

A fossilized egg belonging to the largest known species of bird in history sold at an auction this week for $101,813.




“The elephant bird was thought to be the giant flying beast known as the Roc (or Rukh) in the tales of Sinbad and accounts of Marco Polo's voyages," says a description on Christie’s website. "The bird grew to around 10 or 11 feet in height and whilst probably unable to devour an elephant, as the Roc was reputed to do, it certainly was the largest bird ever to have lived.”

I wonder if there's a discount if you buy a dozen?
