Here is a fact to drop in the pub or classroom with your mates: The largest egg in the measures more than a foot in length, and scrambled one would be the same as 100 chicken eggs. Its mother, an Elephant Bird, towered 10 feet high and the species that lived on Madagascar is thought to have become extinct some time between 1200 and 1700.
