Egg? O_O





This morning I was transferring bags of stuff to donate from our backyard to our front porch and passed a tiny white thing on the ground. When I was on my way back I stopped to pick it up and it looked like....uhhh...an egg? The first thing that I thought was a mint, but I looked closer and noticed little brown specks and spots. I searched for more on the ground, but I didn't find any. I was hoping that if it was an egg it would be a snake egg, but then I did a little digging online and it resembles a garden lizard egg more then a snake egg. What could it be?

My know-it-all father (I'm not kidding. He has an answer to everything I ask him! And don't ask him...) isn't home right now, otherwise I would ask him what it was. I just hope it hatches one of these days! Does anybody have an input?

I think snake eggs are laid lots together, but I'm not too sure about the other reptiles, I think that they lay lots together too.
I'm just pleased that you didn't eat it!

Big hugs!
Have a great week-end!

Hmm, I think if its a bird's egg, if the mama bird isn't sitting on it keeping it warm, it won't hatch. If its a reptiles egg.... I have no idea. My dad found an entire bird's nest in his sail boat a few years ago. The mother wasn't there and the eggs never hatched. Sooooo, i don't know!

Glad you didn't just pop it in your mouth, yikes!

I know! Of course I would never eat a mint I found in the dirt anyway...

Good thing you have the reflex to not eat stuff from the ground!!! My dad would probably have eaten it!!! no joke!

OMG So cool!!!! I wonder if you could let it grow and keep it warm... and then see what hatches!
