Eggs are occasionally found that are twice as large as the normal eggs of the species. They are supposed to arise from the union of two eggs. They develop into embryos that are twice as big as normal embryos. The origin of these "giant eggs" is of peculiar interest to embryologists, and their occurrence has led to several attempts to unite two eggs by artificial means.
