Eggs, as we know, come in all shapes and sizes and this is something to be celebrated.

The Forager has reveled in the glut of funny-shaped egg stories over the years, from the largest egg to the smallest egg, from round eggs to eggs within an egg. But this one really is a bit special – an egg with a snake abnormality at one end.

It is the Year of the Snake, so little surprise to find this spectacular offering was laid by a chook in the Shandong province of northern China.
