Summary : In this article by Diane Christiansan, the extinct elephant birds egg was found in Buffalo Museum of Science. Apparently, this egg was in the museum since 1930. This egg was even bigger then the biggest egg that we have today! That’s a lot of omelets! The reason the egg was in the museum for all these years was because it was mislabeled.  They thought that this one was their only plaster egg. But then they found a plaster egg! The elephant bird went extinct in the 17th century. That was over 300 years ago! And the egg still looks as good as new!

Personal Response: I chose this article because I like history a lot. I’m fascinated with extinct species. I hope there are more articles like this to come.
