On the occasion of Easter and its traditional egg hunt, the Chinese decided this year to innovate by replacing chocolate eggs with pangolin eggs. Once collected by the children, these eggs can be used to make delicious pastries or, for the most impatient, can be eaten raw as soon as the hunt is over.
According to the Chinese authorities, the consumption of pangolin eggs does not present any risk. Although there have been a few cases of minor food allergies that have led to death, the fellow scientists are reassuring and hope that the whole world can share the Easter festivities with Chinese citizens.
