When I lived in South Africa, I was delighted to discover that you can purchase ostrich eggs in the grocery store. There are tons of ostrich farms around, and the eggs, which weigh 3 or 4 pounds, are quite good. While on holiday, we bought one to have for breakfast. You can’t just crack them (unless you have a rock and you don’t mind half a gallon of egg everywhere), so you actually have to drill a small hole in the top of the egg and then drain it into your pan.
Our one ostrich egg, scrambled, served more than eight people.
It’s okay, you can call me a NatGeo Nerd if you want, but I can’t repress my excitement when I see photos or stories about new/rare species.

These are labeled “rare,” so let’s get to the photos!
