This is my first post so please forgive my sense of humour. I loved the description of the discovery of the egg "Chilean researchers found the eggs-traordinary fossil " but what really got me tittering (chuckling), was this:

"The newfound egg, dubbed Antarcticoolithus bradyi (or "delayed Antarctic stone egg" in Greek), pushes the limits of how large scientists thought soft-shelled eggs could grow.

Is this a considered opinion reached by only large scientists, or are smaller scientists barred from voicing an opinion?

Ah well, I read it like that and thought it quite amusing being a height-challenged person myself.
