Alexander Robinson, aged 16 months, is held up by his mother Alexandra to be photographed next to a sub-fossilised pre-17th century Elephant Bird egg at the auction house's premises in London, Wednesday, March 27, 2013.  The Elephant Bird egg, which is estimated to fetch 20,000 to 30,000 pounds ($30,210 to $45,315 and 23,645 to 35,467 euro) in the forthcoming Travel, Science and Natural History sale on April 24, measures over 100 times the average size of a chicken egg, and stands at 21cm in diameter and 30cm in height.  The extinct Elephant Bird species was native to Madagascar and among the heaviest known birds.  (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)
