Christie’s has announced that it will auction off a rare sub-fossilized egg from the extinct Madagascar Elephant Bird – which at over 10 feet tall, was once the world’s largest bird.

Naturally, the species is believed to have met its doom due to overhunting by humans between the 14th and 17th centuries.

The egg, over 100 times the size of a standard chicken egg, measures over 8 inches wide and nearly 12 inches high. Auction officials believe bidding could reach between $30,000-$45,000.

James Hyslop, a Scientific Specialist at Christie’s, told the Independent: “It’s very rare to find one that’s complete. To see one in such perfect condition is a real treat.”

The auction kicks off on April 24th. For more details, jump here.
