  • What kind of egg is this?

    Found some eggs about 300mm inside a large mulch pile which is close to a lake.
    They were where the leaves etc were quite moist and not warm at all... the eggs themselves felt quite cool to touch, elongated and about 30mm x 20mm.
    The pile was being removed so I have one at home and have tried to replicate where I found it.
    I'm thinking reptillian??

      Could be a native feral chicken.

      Or some other form of protected fauna. Tortoise or water bird?

        That's an unhatched egg. Judging by the photo I would say that is was recently laid by a Vernier caliper.
        "I drink it when I'm happy and when I'm sad. Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone. When I have company I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I'm not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise, I never touch it," she once said, "unless I'm thirsty."

          Kinder surprise egg, you won't know what you get til it hatches...
          Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

          when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

            reptile eggs are softer like leather
            bird eggs are hard
            Note: this may not be the universe where the above is relevant.

                    300mm or 30mm?

                    300mm is a foot long.
                    massive bloody egg...

                    EDIT - just realised you meant they were found 300mm inside the pile.

                      Two things to note:

                      a) Some eggs need to be not disturbed (rolled or rotated) as it can kill the embryo inside it. Example a fertilized chicken egg, days 1-18 is ok.....after that a No. The oil from your skin can block the pores in the shell, so make sure you wash your hands first.
                      b) ANY eggs found Could potentially be from a Protected Species of Bird or Reptile.....the Fines are Very Hefty ($4000). Safe to assume that from the OP, you found them on your property (I hope), they are newly Laid (by the colour) but they aren't from a if your near a Lake, it could be a Tortoise OR worst still a SNAKE. Put a LED torch under one to Silhouette it, you might get a better idea.....and good luck if it's a Snake.
