Christie’s to Auction Giant Egg From Extinct Elephant Bird For Around $45,000
For those who collect earth’s pre-historic memorabilia, the era when the dinosaurs survived hold a special meaning. It was then, that a large species of animals existed, which later became extinct due to various natural reasons. Nicolas Cage is one such personality who is known to have a wide collection of such pre-historic artifacts, and its not just him that spends premium cash to own these things. This year, a giant egg from an extinct elephant bird will go under the hammer (not literally!) during a Christie’s event. The estimated value of this rare egg is $45,000, but with the craze among the niche natural history collectors, the barrier could go further.
