I prefer to emulate you, not ostrichize you.

But I have one problem with emu eggs, they are a beautiful teal-blue color. I think if my crocs were teal-blue I might not able to lug them around in my hoodie all day long and hack them to pieces the way I do. I would have to eat them whole. Or not at all.

you should be eating Emu eggs. But one Emu egg equals about a dozen chicken eggs, so you can only invite six people to your omelet party.

to say that it weighed almost 3 lbs fresh, though it has lightened up now. I read how one ostrich egg equals two dozen chicken eggs, or omelets for 12 people. I wanted to pair this croc with an ostrich egg and make an omelet for 12, but I didn’t find any ostrich eggs. And next time I find an ostrich egg how much you wanna bet there won’t be a giant mushroom to go with it. I know there’s not much interest on MO in food, but it was just a thought …

Yes, spring croc hunting can’t be beat

With all the wildflowers blooming, surf booming, and long rows of pelicans sailing by on their way north from Mexico. And a fox strolled by too while I was taking the pic. The big one shown in the second photo measured 15" max diameter and the stem girth is 13", still firm. Yum!
