For most people the word egg means a chicken's egg, and that means one thing: food. Scrambled, poached, or sunny-side up, mixed into cake batter, or gulped down raw- the variations are endless. Although we see eggs almost every day, there's something mysterious about them. Maybe it's the way they contain so much without having any seams or openings. Or maybe it's the promise of gold hidden within a plain white shell. Whatever it is- there's more to eggs than meets the eye. Imagine an egg on a table in front of you. The egg may be of any shape, color, size, or species. You crack it open. What kind of egg is it? 1. Snake 2. Turtle 3. Dinosaur 4. Chicken I say 2.
