Christie's is consistently auctioning off some of the most luxurious things in the world, and this time it happens to be showcasing extinct eggs. The prestigious auction house is putting a giant egg from the extinct elephant bird on the block, and are expecting it to sell for $45,000, but with such popular interest in the piece, it could potentially sell for much higher. This unique auction item would certainly attract collectors who have a fascination for prehistoric items such like this.

If you enjoy prehistoric memorabilia, this extinct egg is definitely something you would want in your collection. The giant elephant bird has been extinct for a very long time, and was known to grow over 11-feet tall and looked similar to an ostrich.
