Silly Season: Bizarre Stories You Won't Believe!
Ever heard of an elephant bird? Nope, us neither! Apparently the now extinct ginormous flightless birds used to roam the earth hundreds of years ago. The giant feathered creatures stood at around 11.8 inches tall and lived in Madagascar. Now, an extremely rare egg has been found and will go up for auction this week. The egg, which is around 200 times the size of a standard chicken egg, is expected to reach an incredible £50,000! Just think how many omelettes that would make! Picture: Sotheby's
