Tribe Trivia 9: Easter

Did you know…

On March 20 1999 the worlds largest Easter-egg hunt was held in Vicoria, Australia. 15,000 chocolate easter eggs were hidden by army troops. The event was coordinated by companies all over Australia and Cadbury’s provided the eggs. The idea was to raise funs for the Vision Australia Foundation. The Land of Cadbury’s “Great Bunny” helped 3000 children find the 150,000 eggs and awarded prizes to those that found special bunny eggs.

The largest Easter Egg ever made was made in South Africa. The egg made entirely of marshmallow and chocolate weighed 4,068 kilos and was 7.65 metres high!!

Speaking of large Eggs…

The largest known dinosaur eggs are those of the Hypselosaurus priscus (don’t ask me how you say that!) This dinosaur was 12 metres long. The eggs this dinosaur laid were 30cm long. This is the equivalent to about 5-6 chicken eggs. What could you do with that much egg?

The Worlds Largest Omelet…

The worlds largest omelet was made with 160,000 eggs. Twenty spanish chefs spent three hours frying the omelet in a huge pan measuring 10m by 15m. The finished omelet was cut into 50,000 portions and were handed out to members of the public who had come to watch this spectacular event.
