This is way beyond cool.

An egg col­lected by Charles Darwin dur­ing his voy­age on HMS Beagle has been redis­cov­ered at Cambridge University.

The small dark brown egg, with Darwin’s name writ­ten on it, was found by a retired vol­un­teer at the university’s zool­ogy museum.

It bears a large crack, caused after the great nat­u­ral­ist put it in a box that was too small for it.

Happy Easter from Charles Darwin!
