Drilling into ostrich egg

This semester, one of the Terrell campus’ biology teachers, Mehdi Mahdavi, was able to locate and purchase a real ostrich egg for another Terrell biology teacher, Sheree Daniel. The only problem they had was figuring out how to open it so that it could be cooked and eaten.

After a lot of searching Mehdi came up with a method to do this without breaking the egg. He brought in his tools and they began to work.

I got to witness the process, which took about 10 minutes. It was very interesting to watch as he slowly and carefully drilled into the egg.

The ostrich egg is not easy to find. You have to find a special farmer who raises them.

Also, winter is the only time most farmers use the eggs to eat; during the summer, they usually hatch the eggs to keep the life cycle going.

Fortunately, I was allowed to film the entire egg opening process. When you watch it you’ll think about how easy you have it cracking open a regular chicken egg.
